Unos aos despus de la Segunda Guerra Mundial, Jacobo Lerner y Len Minsky, amigos de infancia, llegan a San Sebastin provenientes de una aldea rusa. Encuentran un pas catico donde los judos son acusados tanto de ser capitalistas como comunistas, por consiguiente de ser responsables de la debacle econmica.
Con el tiempo, van armando y desarmando sus vidas en ese lugar, y ante el horror de Jacobo, Minsky va cayendo en la locura. Sus arengas frente a la iglesia del pueblo le hacen ganarse las burlas y el odio de los habitantes.
