In Tel Aviv, six friends who are appalled by the Israeli entry in the UniverSong competition record their own song on a mobile phone, then are shocked to learn their recording is selected as Israel's entry for next year's competition.

When the cast 'finally' do the song at the very end, it made me even more irritated at the whole thing, they sounded beautiful together, and only did one lousy song.

A real waste of real talent and frustrating for someone looking for a real musical movie
