Depiction of the ultra-Orthodox Jewish community of Jerusalem is a gentle fable about a childless couple, Moshe and Malli (Rand and his wife Michal), whose prayers are answered in unexpected ways. It's considered a blessing to share the Sukkot festival with others (the title means "holy guests") but the couple are too poor to do so until an expected windfall comes their way--both monetary and in the form of Eliahu (Mizrahi) and Yosef (Gannai), once friends of the younger Moshe who turn out to be prison escapees. Hebrew with subtitles.
