A Holocaust survivor struggles with his guilt and sanity fifteen years after World War II. Adam Stein, a former comedian, entertains his fellow patients, doctors, and nurses as a patient in an Israeli mental hospital, a strategy that also secured his survival during the Holocaust. He becomes a father figure to a feral young boy, but this relationship raises troublesome memories of his act as an SS Officer's pet dog.
