Twelve-year-old Robi Singer and best friend Gabor Blum are the only boys in their class who have yet to be circumcised. Robi is worried. 'What if the knife should slip? How will he show himself in front of the others in the showers? Will he find a wife? And is there plastic surgery to fix up damage of this sort?' So should he have the circumcision? It seems everyone has an opinion - from friends and teachers at the Jewish School, to his eccentric grandmother and hypochondriac mother - but in the end, the final decision is down to Robi.
