Yehezkel and his wife Levana are in their 70s, lliving a comfortable life inside a Jerusalem retirement home. But when their friend Max falls prey to an irreversible illness, they face a terrible shock. When Max asks Yehezkel to help him die with dignity, Yehezkel, a longtime amateur inventor, rises to the challenge by constructing a machine that will allow Max to self-administer a lethal dose of tranquilizers. Levana, however, believes that such a device is immoral, and expresses her passionate disapproval. But when Levana herself begins to face a serious health issue, Yehezkel finds that his feelings about his new contraption become increasingly complicated. Dir. Sharon Maymon and Tal Granit
