Avi Ben Eliahu, a 23-year-old Israeli, has been living
on the beach at Eilat since he was twelve. He has been independent
from a young age, supporting himself with odd jobs like fishing, renting
boats, waiting tables and working as a barman.
His main interest in life is pursuing female
tourists of all ages. He prefers the very young or the over-forties.
He enjoys giving the young ladies a crash course on love. He is drawn
to their innocence and enjoys being part of their first experience of
sex. The older women share the benefit of their
experience with him, but most of all he likes
The film depicts a year in Avi's life and focuses
on three of the many affairs he was involved in
during that time. Nana, an 18-year-old Danish
girl, is caught in his net on the beach. Avi seduces her with great skill.
For her, it is true love, for him, she is just another lay. The
affair hits a sandbar when Nana learns that Avi
also has a jealous Israeli girl-friend. He meets
Chantal, a rich, 50-year-old tourist from France, at a hotel.
After a short affair, she invites him to stay with her in France.
Although she is a generous hostess and showers
him with gifts, life under her scrutiny becomes
intolerable and he returns to Eilat. There he meets Charlotte,
a 23-year-old French woman. After persistent courting, she succumbs.
Gradually, what was just another in his series of
bedded women, becomes a love story that carries
him away …
