Director Yeud Levanon’s highly political film whose screenplay was written by Yeud Levanon and by author, Aryeh Krishek, caused a great deal of controversy and was even banned from airing on television following protests from right-wing organisations. A journalist decides to investigate the murder of his close friend, a playwright who had written a satirical political cabaret show that managed to anger several militant factions. The police detective in charge of the investigation is trying to cover the whole thing up under the guise of a robbery gone wrong; however, the journalist’s independent investigation leads him to a hard right underground organisation. The film, which goes back and forth between nail-biting scenes and musical cabaret numbers performed at a nightclub won top honours at the 1977 Israeli Short Competition.
