David is discharged from the army after serving for 27 years. He returns to his family after being distanced from them for years and tries to find himself in his new civilian life. He believes that he will find his way in some managerial position in the private sector, but he has difficulties adapting to the pace of the “new Israel”, a competitive culture obsessed with success and money. More often than not, he finds himself alone at home, watching a morning TV-show or listening to the radio. When a friend suggests working for a company that markets dietary supplements, he sees this as an opportunity to get his foot in the door of the business world and make something of himself. But this decision slowly gets him and his family entangled in the web of dark forces that rule life in Israel.
