Morris, a fellow survivor of the Nazi concentration camps, comes to visit him in Israel in
1962, Menachem is of course glad to see him. Morris' tales about nearly limitless
prosperity and opportunity in Canada intrigue him also, since he is deeply worried about
the future of his family in war-ridden Israel. Perhaps he should relocate his family to
Toronto. Menachem's ten-year-old son Haim is far too busy playing games and planning
dangerous forays into neighboring countries to notice his father's preoccupations, and his
brother-in-law is ferociously dedicated to implementing socialist ideals in a strong
Israel and is not about to leave. However, his daughter Miri has been seeing a bad sort of
fellow and is in real danger of getting into trouble with him. He sends his daughter to
Toronto to get her out of trouble but has second thoughts about leaving Israel for good.
