This moving story describes the current situation in Israel as seen through a child's eyes. Every year Tali's relatives from the States come to celebrate her birthday party in Jerusalem. But this year no one is coming. Why? Tali shows us her scrapbook of pictures which contrast the happy times of only a few years ago with the sad times of today. Yet, through it all, Tali is certain that life in Jerusalem can once again be wonderful and full of joy.
