Storyline

In the 1960s and 1970s, the book Life as a Parable had a cult following. Poet Meir Wieseltier said that it had the same "revelatory impact as the launching of the Sputnik into space." Young people followed PinchasSadeh like a prophet, and came knocking on his door in the middle of the night. Hagai, a trouble, self-destructive teen from a religious kibbutz, was one of them. He felt that Sadeh could change his life, and perhaps even save it, so he worked up the courage to meet with him and photographed their encounter on his Super-8 camera. A single knock on the door began a relationship that lasted thirty years, in which Hagai would document Sadeh up until his death. His admiration turned into anger and criticism, though it finally turned into acceptance. Through this relationship he was able to get an intimate look at Sadeh's total approach to life, at the young women who surrounded him at all times, and at the young people nearest the author, many of whom ended up killing themselves....
