A meditation on Jewish themes (of faith, history and contemporary life), wordless except for a short Yiddish folk song.

The old part of Jerusalem is a city within a city; it is a labyrinth where people, streets, sky are woven into each other. The image of the dial is a city that lives according to the laws of a dream, out of time and at the same time cyclically. The film consists of micro-plots, interspersed with unfinished stories, allusions and gestures.

If you can translate the words of the song, please let us know and we'll add subtitles.
