Hayuta and Berl, an elderly couple, retired pioneers, and devout Romanticists, find it hard to adjust to today's Israel and to the social changes surrounding them. After years of struggle, the two refuse to let go of their communal dreams, and of their revolutionary plans to build a welfare state in Israel. During a night of painful disillusionment, the two decide to end their lives together, thus putting a stop to the physical and spiritual suffering which fills their last days.
