Campfire takes place in the year 1981 in Jerusalem. Rachel Gerlik, a 42-year-old widow and mother of two teenage daughters, wants to join the founding group of a new religious settlement in the West Bank. The problem is that the acceptance committee wont accept her unless she remarries and proves to the committee that she and her daughters can meet the groups religious and ideological standards. So while Rachel sets out to find a new husband, and to show the committee that she is idealistic enough, 18-year-old Esti, Rachels oldest daughter, does everything she can to ruin her mothers reputation.
