Can we go back in time and fix the present? How do we repent?

Maimonides says there are four actions necessary for repentance: discard the sin, repent, confess, and commit not to do the sin again.

Yohai is a Yeshiva student rabbi charged with counseling Ayelet, an 18-year-old dying of cancer. The two enter into a relationship unsanctioned by the Yeshiva and Ayelet’s family. But who must repent in this love story that moves beyond the expectations of family, faith and society?
