One day, Zishe, who doesn't feel comfortable anymore with the role he has to play every night, tells the audience that he is a Jew. From this moment on, Zishe becomes a hero for the Jewish people who, unfortunately, won't listen to Zishe's exhortations to prepare themselves to fight for their lives.
