The film is a subjective interpretation of the utopian novel Altneuland, written by Benjamin Theodor Herzl. By using a surrealist allegory, the film tries to deal with the collapse of that dream and seeks to emphasize the sense of absurdity and instability of my personal experience as an individual and as part of the Israeli society.
