Orzu works in the theatre. The film begins with a scene where the director circumcises his son in an old synagogue, referring to the religious narrative that led Abraham to sacrifice Ishmael. A new play talks about the birth of a higher man for when a higher man is born, people are saved from oppression, suffering, and unite with the Creator. Orzu is the protagonist but it’s clear that the idea of a higher man is not needed right now, as people are not yet ready.
