The Alexandria Ceremonial Police Orchestra arrives in Israel from Egypt for a cultural event. Once there, they find the expected delegation is not there to meet them. Arrangements to get to their destination of Petah Tiqva have not been taken care of either. They find their own ride and arrive instead at the remote town of Beit Hatikva. Stuck there until the next morning's bus, the band, lead by the repressed Tawfiq Zacharaya, gets help from the worldly lunch owner, Dina, who offers to put them up for the night. As the band settles in the best it can, each of the members attempts to get along with the natives in their own way. What follows is a special night of quiet happenings and confessions as the band makes its own impact on the town and the town on them.

i agree with the comment made below about the lead actor sasson gabai, he's face says so much. he's fabulous. definently needed more musical interludes...i was disappointed with the way a potential romance between sasson and an israeli lady was handled. however a nice little film none the less and a good ending.

A slow ,small.everyday and intimate comedy.Sasson Gabai in the lead role says so much with his face.(A la Juan Villagas in Bombon, Agentina,EPL). Maybe not electric, but maybe a true slice of life, I enjoyed it on a quiet evening, especially the joyful end.
More musical interludes would really have helped
