Memorial Day and Independence Day arrive. Amjad, who thinks he's invited to light a torch at the traditional torch lighting protesting ceremony in front of the prime minister's house, finds himself committing to light a torch at the eve of Independence Day at Mount Herzl. At the same time, Maya, who is a part of the school choir, is torn between her parents' demand and her desire to be perceived as an equal amongst her friends in her Jewish school. She doesn't know whether or not she should take part in the Memorial Day ceremony at school.
