Film includes Eliahu Toker poem:

Libe, helf mikh ibershprayzn
di fintsternish vos loyert in mir.
Azá umendlikhe nakht vos mikh vart
un kh’guefín nisht kayn kholem in zij.

(Set to music by Marcelo Moguilevsky)

Love, Help me cross the darkness that arises in me.
An endless night ahead and me without dreams.

(Translation by YIVO member Joan Levin)
