Topol, or more correctly, Chaim Topol, Israel's best known international film star, leads in this sex comedy. Gadi (Topol), a sergeant in the Israeli reserves, is on active duty but is given leave to return to Haifa to divorce his wife. For reasons best known to the filmmakers, Gadi (who is not conventionally good-looking) is irresistible to all the comely women he meets. On his journey from the Suez to Haifa, he meets a woman officer and makes love with her in a rescue helicopter, meets a woman doctor and makes love to her on her kitchen floor, and finally couples with his soon-to-be ex-wife. These are not his only amorous adventures, just the highlights. The whole film is acted with a light touch and is designed to highlight the humor rather than the prurient elements of the story.
