Winter Feast [חגיגת חורף]

On a rainy winter night a man walks into a restaurant, which is just about to close. He starts eating, and won't stop. That man, Sami, is a survivor—forever hungry, never full, never not hungry. He is divorced, and he is losing his son. The old woman who feeds him does so lovingly, for she is happy to stay longer, waiting for her husband to return. But her first husband is dead, and her second loving husband tries to close up. More neighbors come in, trying to find shelter from the rain, trying to get their lives in order—and all the while the man eats… until he vomits, freeing himself from himself.
