This is a love letter to Israel: a declaration of love to a supposed monster. Voltaire wrote that one has to choose between countries where you sweat and countries where you think. In Israel (the country and the show) you do both. The actor is seated in front of his computer, his face projected onto a screen. It is difficult to tell who he is talking to and speaking for: the audience, himself, the object of his love? Israel, here a nation in the form of fiction, takes on a human face, like someone one has to live with.
