Raziya, a seventy-year-old woman who lives on a moshav, and whose dream is basically to have another grandson or two, embarks on a mission to save her son’s marriage, after he leaves home following a bitter argument with his wife.
She drags her husband Yitzhakal’e along on a crazy adventure of two innocent moshav dwellers in the big city. She isn’t particularly healthy, nor is she young, but her maternal worries give her strengths of which she herself was unaware.
The new comedy by Gur Koren (Romeo and Mom, Don’t Fight) sets a collision course between a woman who just wants to see her family happy, and her kids, the younger generation, who might be ruling the world, but don’t necessarily know what to do with it.
