In order to escape the clutches of the police Bacho, the ring leader, must choose from among the porters two suckers who won't have a choice but to take the wrap and do time in jail. The gang of airport porters reside in a neighborhood adjacent to the airport. The film will take us to their neighborhood in search of these two porters. There in the midst of the love affairs, jealousies, sex and betrayals, Bacho takes advantage of the weaknesses of 2 porters: Punchika - the compulsive gambler, and Otary (Bacho's brother-in-law) - a wife beater, and forces them to...

The film has got a lot of comedy and action as well as pretty romantic scenes.
The story is based around a chaotic Georgian family living in Israel. The comedy is really great. Parallel the film gives an interesting portray of Georgian culture. Fantastic actors. The film is half in Hebrew and half in Georgian.
I watched it twice, for better understanding and because I liked it so much. Many scenes are exaggerated and the extreme situations must be looked upon on as comedy, otherwise one would find many scenes as offensive or discriminative. For my taste, too much nudity though.
