A journey through the life and work of Abraham Halfi, the unsung hero of Hebrew culture whose greatest yearning was to shrink "into an unknown point," as remarked in one of his poems. He was revealed to the public only in his final years, by the popular singer Arik Einstein, who recorded Halfi's poem "Atur Mitzchech" (Your Forehead is Decorated) - the most beloved Israeli song of all times. The film tells the story of this song and the man who created it.
