Yitzhak is proud of the turkey farm that his father built up afteremigrating from Iran to Israel with his family. Tradition and hereditarysuccession demand that Yitzhak's 13-year old son Moti one day takes over therunning of the farm. But he makes no secret of the fact that he's not the leastbit interested, neither in the turkey farm nor the ultra-conservative values ofhis family. He's far happier working on cars. He gets support from his uncle, whocomes to visit from America and who is left equally cold by poultry andreligion. A deep rift opens and threatens to tear the family apart. Thestirring generational drama is the first Persian-language film to be shot inIsrael.
