It’s 1963 and Israel is still in its infancy. Eleven-year-old Aaron hunts for spies and practices Houdini tricks with his friends. A thoughtful, poetic dreamer, Aaron is secretly fascinated by his sophisticated neighbour Miss Blum, and finds himself at odds with his uneducated parents. But as his friends seemingly mature around him, and Israel heads towards war with Egypt and Syria, Aaron finds himself increasingly unable and unwilling to grow out of his childhood.
