Award-winning comedy revolving around an Egyptian police band who arrive in Israel to play a gig, only to take the wrong bus and find themselves stranded in a desolate Israeli village. Out of desperation, two of the band members, conductor Tawfiq (Sasson Gabai) and playboy Haled (Saleh Bakri), accept an invitation from cafe owner, Dina (Ronit Elkabetz), to stay at her residence. The two distinctly different cultures soon realise the universal bonds of love, music and life.
