On the way to the market, the Israeli chicken farmer Marziano and his Romanian worker are stopped at a new Palestinian roadblock. Marziano, the farmer, finds himself confronted with Nabil, a former worker in his stalls, now a police commander. In the burning heat of a merciless sun, it ends in a 'cockfight'.
