Storyline

This is the story of Mr. Naphtali, who would have liked to stay a little longer than the others in his mother's womb. Fortunately, after that, there are the nursing homes. Alas, one day, we have to go out. Finally live, see the world, find a job, a wife. We must grow up. And there he is, all alone in the big city. A nice girl takes him by the hand to play mom and dad. A game he doesn't know. She introduces him to a bunch of good people, adults who perhaps need as much rest as he does - Yet in three days, all these pretty people will be shattered.
