A filmmaker sets out to document August, a month he sees as a metaphor of what is hateful in the State of Israel; his wife, on the other hand, is rather fond of August, which for her represents optimism. Filming August in the streets, he loses control over what his camera captures. All three characters in this film, which combines documentary and fiction, are played by Mograbi.
