Synopsis
A grotesque, tragic-comic chase, after the stolen “Declaration of Independence" the historic symbol of Israeli identity and independence, taking place today in Israel, absurd and violent but at the same time naïve and humane.

It's the eve of Passover, 3 weeks before the celebrations of Israeli independence. The original "Declaration of Independence" is stolen from the Museum in Tel Aviv.

Amir (45) a police investigator, professional yet embittered, gets the mission to return the "Declaration" to its proper place. He doesn't know that Dudi (35), the somewhat naïve thief, has lost the ‘Declaration’ which is now passing hands somewhere in the country.

Knowing that the situation is now challenging his manhood and professionalism, Amir finds Dudi and the two, while trying to retrace the journey of the document, find themselves, through violence and terror, on a quest for friendship and maturing. As they find “The Declaration" they also regain their personal independence.
