Leah Ben Ami is a driven, gifted 17 year old Israeli who must return to Israel for her seminary studies as she knows she is being pulled there by a force greater than herself. Yehuda 19 has been yearning for her since they were both young and she now is returning to her place of birth to be with him though they've never met.
Yehuda and his 4 year old sister Efrat where left as orphans just one year ago. Under stressful situations Yehuda met Leah who is the exact likeness of his late mother.
The meeting was arranged by Rebbetzin Agmon , the grandmother of Yehuda and young Efrat.. When the Rebbetzin marked the entrance exam of Leah, and seeing in Leah's picture an identical likeness to her late daughter, she had to travel to America to meet the only student who had a near perfect score on the school's entrance exam.
