On a hot summer day Marziano, an Israeli chicken breeder, accompanied by his Romanian worker drives his chickens to market. They are brought to a halt at a Palestinian roadblock. In his attempts to get through, Marziano is forced to confront Nabil, the police commander in charge, who used to work in his chicken-coop before. In the burning heat of a merciless sun, it ends in a 'cockfight'. There begins a clash of two men, two human natures, all this in the context of a political conflict.
