Marie was two years old when her mother gifted her to her infertile sister, a common Moroccan custom at the time. 40 years later, Marie travels from France to Israel, where her family now lives, for her wedding. Her warm and excited family is preparing for the custom of “Seven Blessings”—a week of festive meals in honor of the bride. But Marie’s presence also opens old wounds. Between family meals, secrets and lies are revealed. Marie is desperate for an apology although her family is sure she should be thanking them.
