This upbeat Israeli drama is set within a prison and features real inmates. Filmed in black and white, it is based on prison warden Shlomo Kfir's book. Soon after arriving to the worst wing of a prison, Shlomo, sentenced for assault and battery, is befriended by hardened, drug-addicted prison boss Charlie.
Basically a decent fellow, Shlomo tries to help Charlie kick his drug habit so he can leave the drug-filled wing and go to a more humane one. The two make a strange pair and poor Charlie goes through hell as he tries to withdraw from the drugs. Fortunately, loyal Shlomo stands beside him and protects him from the other inmates until the feel-good end.
