This is the story of Peter, a 65 year old widower and a theater actor who never got a leading role. Now he lives every day like the day before: he goes to work and after that he meets his Romanian friends at the coffee shop. That's where he forms the unlikely friendship with Alona, a 28 year old talented waitress who writes blogs in her spare time.
As his friends jokingly encourage him to run for the Knesset in order to receive a Knesset member's pension, Alona offers her help. Together they form "The Widows and Widowers Party" while the group pitches in for their cause.
Peter offers Alona a place to stay and wisdom of life. She offers him the leading role of a lifetime.
