Margalit (Gila Almagor) is a prostitute with one child, and she wants another one. A man-hater, she doesn't want a husband, just another child. At this point she is an independent woman who works without a pimp and who "owns" a section of a road outside of Tel Aviv. There, she offers her services to the truck drivers who get their gas nearby. Among her clients she finds one handsome enough to suit her and goes to the kibbutz where he lives to induce him to impregnate her, which he does. While living with her mother in semi-retirement during her pregnancy, she goes out with some lowlife bums she knows who quite literally take her to Sodom and rape her. The movie continues her story quite a bit beyond these episodes.
