Shlomo who discovers in his son’s Assaf room, women’s clothing and accessories, decides to ‘teach the boy a lesson’.

When Assaf returns to his parent’s home on a rainy night from a party, his attempts to enter home fail.  His father, with the silent consent of his mother, locked the door.

The nurse is Anna (his son Assaf) and she manages to conquer Shlomo’s heart by her charming personality and her special attitude toward life.
