Abandoned village- founded by mountain Jews in Azerbaijan in the 19th c. There is a Jewish cemetery near the village. An old man (Meyer) is working at the grave. He is the only Jew who stays in this village. He has been living in this village for all his lifetime. He knows everything about history of this village, and he’s the only nexus between the Past of this Jewish village and the Present time.

His parents, his wife and his neighbors are buried in this cemetery. He is looking after the graves. He knows the life story of every Jew buried here indeed!

He has six children, they have left the village a long time ago. They would like to take care of him, but he rejects. A way to the Land of Covenant is open for him. His children are waiting for him. But Meyer considers he has to stay in the village. What’s a reason of that?
