Incited by a disillusioned young man who has decided to flee from civilization, a group of 4 people go searching for freedom and happiness on an isolated island . When their boat goes astray and they are left without food, their animal instincts take over, bringing the film to its catastrophic end.
This bizarre movie was made by a former lifeguard turned short film maker, stars fairly good actors (some of whom were stars on the Tel Aviv theater stages for years to come) hamming it up or just given odd direction, has an alright but repetitive score by one of Israel’s greatest composers, and contains such unforgettable scenes as the “STOP PUSHING BUTTONS” speech, a psychedelic dream sequence involving smashing giant tape recorder things with a sledgehammer, a hippie-palooza in an abandoned warehouse, random toplessness, cardboard sharks, long wandering across desert islands, and the main cast screaming out “Wonderful Feeling!” over and over. The insane ending has to be seen to be believed.
