Elka, a new immigrant to Israel from Brooklyn, NY, is finding it hard to deal with her best friend Daniela's wedding. During the "Shabbos Kallah" event, Elka, who is not always good at keeping her mouth shut, tries to prove in front of all their friends that Daniela will still need her once she's married, especially for her great knowledge about sex. Her provocative remarks ruin the party and force her to ask for forgiveness.
