Suburbs of Tel Aviv. Bnei Brak, world capital of the Haredim, the ultra-Orthodox Jews. When he was a child, Menahem Lang was known for his kindness, commitment to the studying the Talmud and especially for his golden voice, which made him a renowned performer of liturgical chants. However, he was hiding a secret: he was raped by the members of the community that worshipped him for years. After a decade, Menahem returns to the scene of the crime. At the same time, he returns to all the places he loved. The path of initiation is intersected with incredible encounters, recovered rituals and reconciliation.
