As David anxiously awaits the official inquiry into his conduct, he turns to those who are most important to him – his closest friend and comrade Marce; his Catholic adoptive mother; his Jewish birth mother; and Margalit, herself Sephardi Jewish.

Faced with the prospect of losing his family altogether, he must confront his conflicting identities and faiths and decide the man he wants to become.
