This is the story of eight Israeli Arab widows, all lacking vocational training, who decided one day to change their fate and to jointly open a "start up" - a plant for high quality pickles. As widows with no income, they are condemned to be lonely and to stay at home and raise their children on a meager Social Security allowance. If they remarry they will usually have to give up their children. In response to their situation, they decide to join forces and open this plant for pickles.
Fatma, whom was left with eight children, is the only one who drives a car - so she becomes the distributor. Samira, the one who speaks Hebrew, becomes the C.E.O. The eight women, who didn't know each other before, become a solid support group, and the plant becomes their second home.
The joyful women cut cauliflower and other vegetables at a great pace, and the company grows. They resolutely try to master the art of doing business, but as the months go by, the question as to whether the company will manage without a financial backer becomes increasingly pressing... Just as firmly as the widows decided to stop sitting at home doing nothing, they speak frankly about their private lives. In this way, the film provides insight into the closed community the women live in and reveals their sorrows and moments of joy
