What we got instead was the story of an Israeli woman, Rachel (Michaela Eshet), who is somewhat in mourning a year after her husband's death from cancer. Rachel tries to uproot her daughters, Esti (Maya Maron) and Tami (Hani Furstenberg), against their will to take part in a burgeoning settlement with a bunch of people she doesn't really care that much about. The movie is barely about the politics of settlement -- or politics at all, really, though it contains at one point a somewhat inexplicable denouncement of Shimon Peres, who, at the time of the film's setting, 1981, had just lost an election as the head of the Labor party but who would later go on to be Prime Minister.
