Avram Danino, the mayor of a small orthodox town in Israel, decides to locate a new building in "Siberia" - the Russian immigrant neighborhood. Soon enough, he discovers that the immigrants, led by the charismatic Anton, misunderstood the purpose of the building in a tragic, comic - and extremely problematic - way. Can Danino save himself and the city from the potential scandal?
