Rachele is 12 years old when she learns her father is seriously ill. While her plan her Bat-Mitzvah, Rachele's teachers happen to cast her as the Madonna in the school's Christmas play. Pulled in opposing directions, Rachele feels the threads of her life begin to untangle. With the fear of losing her father, various forces compete for Rachele: from her charismatic Jewish grandfather, to her Catholic grandparents on her mother's side; and even an old teacher who believes the young girl might take solace from a 19th-century novel. These disparate influences ultimately blend in Rachele's imagination to create a fantasy that transcends her religious and cultural conflicts.
