A man who left Israel at a young age for Paris with his parents now leads a life of hustling drugs and putting up with a brother who is always getting into financial trouble with mob-like characters. He actually knows next to nothing about Israel, but he finds an opportunity to go into business in Tel Aviv with a friend. Lots of his contacts try to dissuade from leaving suggesting that his idea of emigration is impractical. The film rests mostly on his relations with his family, but they have no desire to listen to his plan of going to Tel Aviv.
