Through a city torn apart by a violence they cannotcomprehend, three disparate people a documentary film-maker, a yeshivastudent, and a psychotic fireman must try to survive, and try to findmeaning: even if it means being lost themselves. As Tel Aviv is consumed, astrange mountain rises at the heart of the city, and shows the outline of whatmay be another, alien world beyond. Can there be redemption there? Can thefevered rumours of a coming messiah be true? As the city loses contact with theoutside world and closes in on itself, as the fewsurviving children play and scavenge in the ruins, can innocence survive, and isit possible for hope to spring amid such chaos?
