Zahava Ben plays the daughter of a French/Arabic speaking singer. (Unless you speak French and Arabic there are scene in the film where you will need to read the Hebrew subtitles) Vivi and her father emigrate to Israel where he eventually gets recognised by friends and takes up work singing in a small bar. Vivi works there as a waitress until she gets her lucky break when her father goes blind and she takes over from him. Spotted by a crooked talent scout, who signs her up, she ends up performing lots of shows but doesn't get to receive all the money she has earned. Although the storyline is fairly simplistic, is well played out, but that's not why I've watched it 4 or 5 times. Zahava has an amazing voice.
