A Japanese director is on a search for a contemporary fisherman in the Sea of Galilee. He meets with Menachem Lev, a rugged “kibbutznik” fisherman. The director documents him for a year and compares him to Peter, who was a fisherman and the first disciple of Jesus. During filming, the relationship between the director and the Israeli fisherman is strengthened.
