Well into their ’70s, Yehezkel and his wife Levana are living a comfortable life inside a Jerusalem retirement home. But their contented lives are soon dealt a terrible shock when their dear friend Max falls prey to an irreversible illness. Looking for a way out, Max asks Yehezkel for help to 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.
