In the 1960’s, a group of Holocaust survivors are living together in a hostel in Jerusalem. At night they meet in the corridor to drink cognac and play cards. The inn is run by a Mrs. Pracht whose insistence on order and discipline and her disdain for Yiddish enrages the residents. Manfred, one of the residents, leads a quiet life until he meets a woman and forges a new relationship with her. However, an irrational atmosphere prevails and an extreme decision leads to an inevitable end.
