It is the 1948 War of Independence. Lolek, a young Holocaust survivor arrives in Israel and is thrown in the middle of the desert. A stranger to the language and the new identity he is given, Lolek is assigned to an isolated post under a brutal commander and the burning sun. With the unrelenting sun and the bleak desert landscape as the backdrop, we are exposed to a modern parable of Israeli identity and meaning.
