This film is a mood film set to the poetry of Yehuda Amichai that shows scenes of contemporary life in Israel. Views of ruined cemetery in Jerusalem. Man walking among graves, walking along seashore. Waves washing over still pictures of the Holocaust. Ruins of Caesarea. Children playing, wife bidding farewell to her soldier husband. Stills of wounded soldier, soldiers resting on ground during exercise, then on the move. Mother bathing baby. Still of children and young couples. People bathing in river with waterfall. CU of man by river and then in army uniform on truck. Stills of war, soldiers and victims. Soldiers departing by bus, soldiers training. Damaged vehicles and ruined buildings. CU of gravestones in cemetery. Jerusalem skyline at dawn. Sun rising, market stalls opening. Mother playing with son.
