Synopsis

Jerusalem, 1936. German-Jewish immigrants open Café Ta'amon on King-George Street. In 1950 the Israeli parliament, the Knesset, establishes itself across the street and Ta'amon becomes a meeting spot for leading politicians like Golda Meir, Moshe Dayan, Itzhak Rabin and Menachem Begin. Over the years activists from left and right have argued over coffee at Ta'amon. 2013: Mordechai Kopp, owner of the place since 1960, is now 85 and he wants to retire. He intends to close the café. Israeli politics will have to be debated in the Knesset.
