David Shaul Shalhin is a lonely 12-year-old boy whose drunken father Arie Elias fails to see him heading down the path of juvenile delinquency in this teen drama. David's only friends are a disabled girl from his class and his faithful dog. He is pressured by teens who want him to be a lookout while they "raid" a local drugstore. David is forced to run away and hide before his father gets concerned enough to comfort his troubled son and turn both of their lives around. The feature received a favorable reaction at the 1966 Venice Children's Film Festival.
