Avi Mograbi believes that the month of August serves as a metaphor for whatever is hateful in the state of Israel. His wife, on the other hand, is rather fond of August, which represents to her all that is optimistic. And indeed, the filmmaker goes out to the street, and on one hand loses control over what is captured by his camera. Yet, on the other hand, he miraculously tells, by his failure to fulfill his mission and document what he was after, that very story, though in a totally different way from what he planned and without being aware of it at all. At the same time, in his home, his wife is taken captive by the producer of another film. This filmmaker is involved with a film concerning the massacre of tens of praying Moslem prayers by an Israeli physician in the cave of Machpela in the occupied town of Hebron in 1994. All three characters - the filmmaker, the filmmaker’s wife and the producer – are played by one person: Avi Mograbi. "The idea behind August was very similar to the one proposed in the film by the filmmaker’s wife: to make a film that would consist solely of violence, bickering, and anger. Just that. This is Israel, wherever you go, everything is fraught with violence." (Avi Mograbi)
