    Ephraim and Moshka come every day for the past 60 years to the same coffee shop. This is their daily mundane routine. They feel lifeless and useless. Like fish in an aquarium they gaze through the glass window, watching the revolution they were once willing to die for, spit in their faces. Beautiful, young and perky, the young adults of the decadent Tel Aviv pass by the café window, without giving the two old men the slightest of glance. As if they were transparent, as if they did not exist. The pain on what’s become of the revolutionists, who now feel worthless, starts to take its toll. Everything changes when a car accident takes place in front of the coffee shop....
