This Israeli comedy affectionately follows an aging hippie as he goes about the business of day-to-day living. Beach-goers near Tel Aviv have many needs, and the hippie (Uri Zohar) serves as many of them as he can: cokes, chairs and boats being the main items of business.

Pretty soon, he’ll get slapped by his superior, rejected by a beach hussy, and ridiculed by a couple of teenagers and a beloved whore. Only then will he understand that the world is moving on, with or without him.
