Wherever You Go is the story of Zohara, an Israeli woman cut off from her Orthodox family who decides to attend her sister's wedding and reconnect with her family. En route, she stops for a desperate Bedouin woman attempting to escape from a forced marriage. Though they come from different worlds, both share the same desire: To be themselves.
While waiting for someone at the airport, Aya is mistaken as the assigned driver for Overby, a Dane visiting Israel to judge the Rubenstein Piano Competition. She does not immediately reveal the truth and proceeds to drive Overby to Jerusalem, developing a tension filled rapport with him.
