“If we fight and one of us couldn‘t stand it anymore, we‘d have these signals. Like sticking a coin in the electricity pole near your house. We‘ll come up with seven signals, the last will be an SOS flashing a mirror into the other‘s room.“
Jerusalem in the early sixties. The political climate has temporarily calmed down. However, Aharon is in a state of crisis. His head is full of weighty ideas about love, betrayal and conjuring tricks. But compared with his best friend Gidon, this great thinker seems rather puny. Aharon’s mother is convinced that he’s staying small on pur- pose, and his father does little to gain his respect. Aharon arranges the end of his childhood himself. After all, if you want to grow up, you do have to grow.
