Sinossi

Novembre 1989 nella cittadina di Kfar Saba, in Israele. Una lunga estate senza pioggia sta per finire. Seguiamo un giorno nella vita di Noa, 10 anni. La ragazza è arrabbiata con il suo migliore amico, con la madre e con la sorellina. Suo padre è a letto, malato: dalla sua stanza può sentire solo la voce del conduttore del telegiornale alla radio. Noa spera che la sera porti la prima pioggia.
