A new playboy neighbour causes a great commotion in an apartment building in a Tel Aviv suburb. Enchanted residents succumb to the magic of his karaoke set, but it's a well-known fact that appearances can be deceptive!
Meir and Tova lead a quiet life in a posh apartment building. But after years of marriage, they are deeply bored with each other. The unbearable monotony of their existence is shattered by a new neighbour. Itsik, a modeling agent, comes from the glitzy world far far away. With his arrival, miracles start to happen: the nightlife flourishes, celebrities are sighted, wild parties commence. Meir and Tova also undergo a surprising metamorphosis. They will do everything to reciprocate the friendship of a charming neighbour who can find the way to every heart. "Karaoke" is a gentle social satire and an intelligent comedy that confirms that fulfilling your fondest dreams doesn't always bring happiness. And we guarantee that the poignant karaoke performance by Sasson Gabai will stay with you for a long time!
