603 plays with the central issues of the Palestinians in the Israeli prison of Ashkelon, in cell 603, where their imagination runs wild and the walls begin moving. Four men see themselves crushed by history and take refuge in fantasy each in their own way. Today their then-heroic acts seem pointless and in prison the longing for people outside prevails, and the longing for a life in freedom - but what shape could that take? For years they have been waiting, now one of them urges them to become active again ...
