Shimmon Lehrer has given up on life. Loneliness, age and household chores have defeated him. That’s why he created Joseph. Joseph is a golem. He looks human, but he’s as strong as Hercules – and invulnerable. He’s also missing a soul, so he can’t speak, think or feel emotion. He has no concept of right and wrong. Fortunately, a golem will only obey its master and, since Shimmon only wants help with the housework and groceries, what could possibly go wrong?
