Nahman Ruzumni lives on the fringes of the ultra-orthodox community in Bnei Barak. As a "Driver" he takes beggars to wealthy people's homes, and helps them find the right way to tell their story in order to receive charitable donations. For his services he gets a cut of the money, and he records their stories in his notebook. Nahman spends the rest of his nights in makeshift casinos and dining halls where the more questionable members of this pious society spend their nights. But when his wife leaves suddenly, Ruzumni is faced with the responsibility of caring for his nine year old daughter. With no other choice, Ruzumni takes his daughter along on his nightly journeys, exposing her for the first time to this world. Getting to know his daughter, Ruzumni remembers the only story he could ever tell...his own. Together in the dark alleys of Bnei Brak they each find, even if for a short moment, their lost childhoods.
