As the elections approach, director Avi Mograbi sets out to make a documentary film about Israel’s most meligned politician, Arik Sharon. Sharon, a figure admired by many, is a legendary warrior and officer and was a minister in the former Likud government. Mograbi, who was a conscientious objector to the Lebanon War, has personal issues with Sharon, the mastermind of that war. Nevertheless, while making the film, he begins to see Sharon in a different light. To his surprise, Mograbi discovers that Sharon is warm and friendly, completely different from the man he thought him to be. As the elections approach, Mograbi sets aside his left-wing sentiments and becomes unexpectedly close to Sharon. In a surreal scene in the final days of the campaign, he suddenly finds himself dancing with the ultra-Orthodox Breslaver hassidim and singing songs supporting Bibi Netanyahu. This is the story of an impossible encounter between right and left in the reality of contemporary Israel.
