Yankele, a mysterious Holocaust survivor, has an office in the back of a movie theater, situated in the seedy area of the port. The theater, run by a family of seven Romanian dwarves, shows only love stories. Yankele introduces Arik to a new world built on the ruins of the old one. Arik learns the mysteries of the human heart when he falls in love with Tamara, who has just returned from America with different views of life.
