Arnav (rabbit in Hebrew) is a graffiti artist and bartender who lives near the Old City of Jerusalem. Wearing a mask, he paints walls at night and hopes that his former girlfriend will come back to him. But after Arnav sees a stranger forced into an abandoned apartment across the alley by three bearded men, he is sucked into a scenario involving a hard-boiled investigator, a gorgeous mystery woman, and the captive himself, Rabbi Shmaya Knafo, whose devoted followers consider him a modern prophet.
