What seems to be capriciousness, even if, is known as a clear-eyed popularity of discontent with the well hedged course her lifestyles has previously. as soon as in Israel, Rebecca unearths her longing for recognition thwarted at each flip. The society she had vaguely imagined because the embodiment of every thing lacking from her personal adventure turns out to supply no position of access for a unmarried lady, an amerika'it, an assimilated Jew. however the obstacles she encounters, the emotional dead-ends that confront her in dating after courting, develop into signposts on a frantic trip of self-discovery. making a twin standpoint of the "insider" in retrospect on what she feels to be the "outsider", Rebecca's tale proceeds with ruthless honesty, heading off either romanticism and depression. Circling Eden is a poignant rendering of ways it feels to be a lady in modern day Israel. The motion is decided in 1973, the 12 months of the Yom Kippur War.
