Filmmaker Yair Hochner puts politics on the back burner to craft this upbeat comedy about the multitude of domestic and romantic issues faced by contemporary youth living in Tel Aviv. Omer is a homosexual young man with problems even most straight people can relate to: Omer is approaching 30, and still hasn't established his own identity, much less found the man of his dreams. Meanwhile, his heterosexual sister, Shirley, thinks she has found her ideal mate in hip café owner Michal, yet refuses to settle down and let go of her longtime dreams of moving to Antarctica. Of course, their friends and relatives all have their opinions on how Shirley and Omer could pull their lives together if they really desired to do so, their outspoken mother, Shoshanna, being the most vocal of all. Who knows, one day it may even happen.
