Aviva is a cook in a hotel. But what she really wants to be is an author. Her sister introduces her to the famous and rather arrogant writer Oded who takes her under his wings. Too bad his rather unconventional visions of Aviva collide with her reality: a husband who’s out of work, teenage kids who sulk, a suicidal grandma. An endearing comedy with a brilliant cast ends with a surprise.
