She is transferred to an Israeli women’s prison, where Palestinian political prisoners are incarcerated with Israeli criminal inmates. The prison director pressures her to spy on the Palestinian inmates. While in prison, Layal gives birth to a baby boy. Against all odds, she manages to find a meaning to her life.
