Synopsis

Leni Dalinsky arrives home to introduce her fiance Rafi to her Jewish family. Everything goes wonderfully until he reveals he is Palestinian. Trying to ingratiate himself, Rafi offers to help in the kitchen, but accidentally drops the soup he was meant to defrost out of the seventh floor window, hitting a pedestrian below who looks remarkably like Leni's father.
 
In a heightened state of anxiety, Rafi is forced to continue supper made somewhat unplatable by the first course being soup. During the meal, Leni's sister Tania, single mum and part time belly dancer, reveals her suspicion that their father is having an affair.
 
Gloria, Leni's mother, is in a state of apoplexy and insists on going to the office to catch him in flagrante delicto. Gloria drags the rest of the family with her to bear witness. While the search is on, Rafi and Tania slip off and Tania demonstrates her belly dancing technique to an ecstatic Rafi, leading to an illicit kiss. Gloria, returning from her search, is depressed and sits down beside Rafi demanding to know whether or not he finds her attractive. Rafi is frozen with shock: not only has he apparently killed the father and kissed the sister but now the mother is coming onto him.
