This downbeat drama featuring a brother's incestuous love for his sister is notable for good camerawork and art direction. Thomas (Juliano Mer) and his sister Mariana (Semadar Kilchinsky) have arrived together in Tel Aviv and set up housekeeping in the sleazy side of the city. Thomas makes his money as a "kept man" for two different women who are nightclub entertainers. At the same time, he attracts the attentions of an amorous transvestite. His unnatural love for his sister goes unexpressed, but his jealousy cannot be controlled. If his sister wants to lead any sort of a normal life, it will be up to her to break her dependence on her brother and move on.
