Prior to their eldest daughter’s wedding, Hila and Yoel, an architect and a senior journalist, return from a pretentious tasting meal that confronts them with the disparities between their financial capabilities and their social “standards”. It also transpires that their personal and professional lives are hanging by a thread that is about to snap.
When their daughter and her intended groom, a religious settler who was raised in an extreme rightist home, come to their house, the hatred and animosity they feel towards the groom’s family and everything they represent come to the surface, feelings that are inappropriate for a “liberal and enlightened” couple.
And when the groom’s parents join the mix, the situation spins completely out of control, and the wedding itself is called into question.
Will the power of the young couple’s love manage to overcome the adults’ prejudices and ideologies?
Do we have the power to transform the Zionist “melting pot” idea into the Jewish way that strives for reconciliation and a harmony of opposites?
