Synopsis

A perky group of young Israelis finds themselves the underdogs in an international singing contest in this kitschy musical comedy from celebrated Israeli director Eytan Fox. To escape the stress of their daily lives, the Tel Aviv neighbors congregate to watch Universong, a spoof of the Eurovision song contests. Uninspired by the dull Israeli entry and seeking to cheer up a friend, the group composes its own cheesy tune. To their surprise, the song is chosen to represent Israel in the finals competition in Paris. Facing creative pressures from the comically inept Israel Broadcasting Authority, the group is forced to choose between friendship and fame.
