The film follows the story of Adam Stein, a charismatic patient of a psychiatric asylum for Holocaust survivors in Israel, in 1961. Adam was a comedian in Berlin prior to the Second World War, during which he was sent to a concentration camp. He manages to survive the war only because his pre-war act was recalled by an SS officer, who then takes Adam as his "pet". The officer insists that he'd act like a dog, something he did during one of his sketches. With time, Adam starts having the delusion he is actually a dog.
