A middle-class Israeli family has a reunion for Passover and find themselves feasting on a smorgasbord of dysfunction as they try to cope with their innumerable problems in this drama. Yona and Michael are hosting the Passover festivities. It is a sadder than usual gathering because one of their sons was recently killed in a military accident. Nathaniel, twin brother of the deceased, creates a stir when he shows up with his new girl friend. His ex-wife Gila bears this well and she and the girl friend become better acquainted. Dorona is the eldest and is constantly plagued by allergies, something that has helped kill the romance in her marriage to Rikki. Shai is anorexic while Dalia is morbidly obese. Meanwhile the bratty son of Nathaniel and Gila creates all sorts of malicious mischief.
