Plot[edit]

The 15-year-old Maya from Tel Aviv moves with her father Ehud to a remote village to manage the hotel North Star. The hotel is currently owned by Gideon, Maya's grandfather and the father of her mother who died two years earlier. Arriving at the hotel, Maya tries to make a new beginning, and to build a new life. But Maya's new life is not free from complications. Maya must navigate through the everyday stresses of life of a teenager, and must protect herself from false friends. Complicating it is, that there is a new woman named Yuly in her father's life, that Maya finds difficult to handle. Fortunately, Maya finds new friends and falls in love with a boy named Sean. But soon after, Maya learns a secret that could not only turn their lives upside down, but also may lead to the closure of the hotel.
