In the Israeli city of Bat-Yam, at a small square opposite the concert hall, there is a deteriorating public-housing building. Most of the time the square is deserted, only a few people sit outside between the palms, and sometimes a passer-by looks over to the house. In there, every now and then, someone walks up and down the stairs or smokes a cigarette in the corridor. On sabbat, we visit six of the elder inhabitants in their cramped flats. Silently, we observe how each of them handles the decay in his or her own way. Fascinated by this place the director, Miki Polonski, shot his thesis film about the relationship between these individuals, whose lives have happened to coincide here.
