The(ir) Blurb...

Siblings Michal and Shauli return to their kibbutz for their aunt's funeral. At the funeral, they meet Gavri, the kibbutz' gay Manager, who has not come out of the closet. They demand funds the kibbutz confiscated from the private bank accounts of their deceased parents and aunt - bank accounts which were opened despite kibbutz principles of collectivism. Shauli needs money to care for his ailing partner. Gavri's refusal to turn the money over to Shauli leads him to blackmail Gavri against the backdrop of a romantic intrigue between them when they were youths.
