SOMEWHERE IN AN ISOLATED part of post-Soviet Romania, two Israelis are seated in a dining hall in a nuclear-bombproof shelter deep underground.

One of them, a reporter, turns to the other, and goes on a tirade about how the bunker symbolizes everything that is wrong with society. He lashes out at the folly of trying to run away from the problems of the world, and compares building downward into the depths of the earth with the futile attempt in biblical times to build a tower to heaven.
