Director Uri Zohar uses jump cuts and dissolves associated with New Wave cinema in this avant garde comedy in which he also performs. When two immigrants arrive in Israel, they each open lemonade stands on an isolated desert road. They hallucinate and believe they see a city springing up before their eyes as well as a Biblical figure who walks on water and spouts the "To be or not to be..." passage from Hamlet. The two amazed immigrants cavort on a donkey as they plan to make a film of their own.
