A satirical parable that brings to light our unconscious, but deep-seated prejudices. Ben and Raz (played by real life couple Shlomi Bertonov and Ariel Wolf) are a gay couple living in an updated flat in a migrant neighborhood of Tel Aviv, who are painstakingly pursuing their desire to have a child. When one of the men decides to improve his neighborhood by planting a tree on his street, it triggers a sequence of events leading to the arrest of an Eritrean immigrant.
