Leni arrives home to introduce her fiancÚ Rafi to her Jewish
family for the first time. Her mother Gloria, her promiscuous sister
Tania, Tania's contrary 8 year old daughter Paula, her recently orthodox
brother David and her blind grandfather Dudu. Everything goes
wonderfully until the lovers reveal that Rafi is Palestinian. With his
future mother-in-law Gloria unhinged by the news, Rafi tries to
ingratiate himself by helping in the kitchen. To make matters worse he
accidentally drops the soup he was meant to defrost out the seventh
floor window, hitting a pedestrian below. Rafi sneaks downstairs to
check on the body and retrieve the soup. Having seen the victim, Rafi
rushes upstairs not knowing what to do! As he returns to the kitchen he
notices a family portrait of Leni's father, which bears a very close
resemblance to the corpse lying outside.........

" A spirited Spanish farce replete with gross misunderstandings,
eccentric characters, unfortunate coincidences and hastily constructed
cover stories - it's the sort of thing Basil Fawlty might get into if
he'd married Manuel's sister"
