In the follow-up to their smash hit debut film Maktub, popular comedy duo Guy Amir and Hanan Savyon return to the screen with an uproarious caper-buddy film. Nissan and Shaul are two bumbling thieves whose failed attempt to rob a bank lands Shaul in jail. Released from prison just before the Jewish New Year, Shaul tries to regain the trust of his wife and daughter but his plans go awry when Nissan, now a Hasidic Jew, re-enters his life seeking forgiveness. When the two reformed criminals find themselves in need of money, their adventures begin anew.
