Eve studies at the Hebrew University for Jewish Renewal, an island of militant secularism in the religiously-run Shalem State, while Manny is an unemployed graduate student with a secret: he is falling in love with his religious roots and turning his back on modern moral relativism. As their wedding date approaches, Manny deserts Eve, then devastates her a second time with the revelation that he has pre-empted their wedding with a marriage to a new lifestyle. In the midst of this betrayal, Eve collides with a pre-soul who has had his out-of-this-world eyes on her all along.
