Just a few steps from downtown Jerusalem is Independence Park. At night, the park transforms into an eccentric empire of prophets. Each character has a complex relationship with God, and all of them are seeking conversation and contact. Equipped with a small camera, the filmmaker treads among them, capturing moments of intimacy and alienation – and along the way, examines his own faith.
