The film follows Israeli artist Zvi Lachman during the decade 1998-2008. It centers on moments of conversion, which assemble fragments of the cultural past to dramatize “difference,” such as the tension between monumental figures and minute daily details, as well as between the "I" and its “other.” Israeli Jewish identity, which is of paramount significance to Lachman, is seen as emerging from other traditions. These "differences" culminate in an enlightening artistic encounter—never ignoring the political—between Lachman’s masterly portraiture, and Muhammad Ali’s evocative reading of his poem "Thrombosis in the Veins of Petroleum". Lachman’s work challenges traditional conceptions of representation as well as accepted codes of religious and cultural identity. American critic Geoffrey Hartman describes Lachman as “one of the best, if not the best sculptor working presently in Israel" (NY Arts).
