    • Iksal, a small village of Galilee. Ahmad, a handsome 35 years old guy, is still single. In his hometown, this is a quite problematic situation. But after fifteen years of fruitless searching for a wife for her son, Ahmad’s mother eventually gave up. Even Facebook and modern methods to pick-up girls were a failure with Ahmad. Sameh, the director of the film, decides to take a flight back from New York in order to "help" his childhood friend.
