Comedian and director Ze'ev Revach has a stock formula for the films he creates, namely a dual role for himself with much mugging for the camera and no real storyline. In this comedy of errors strictly for an Israeli audience accustomed to his humor, Revach plays a lowly janitor in a large office building who is tempted by a large pile of U.S. dollars he finds, and so he takes some of the money. Frightened by the possible consequences once the deed is done, he calls in his twin brother (a gay hairdresser) to substitute for him at work and put the money back in its place. Needless to say, one mix-up after another occurs to prevent the brother from carrying out his assignment.
