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.
