At his 18th birthday party, Udi experiences the trauma of his life.  His childhood sweetheart, Raphaela, leaves him and kisses his younger brother Lior who plays basketball for Maccabi Tel Aviv. Udi holes himself up in his room for three years, disconnecting from any human contact, puts on weight and dedicates his life to The Lord of the Rings.  

When Udi is 21, Lior informs him that their grandmother has passed away and left a will stating that if Udi marries within a month he will receive five million dollars.  If he doesn't get married the money will go to the Friends of the Earth charity in Jaffa. Their grandmother also left a ring with a mysterious electrifying power: If a girls puts the ring on but doesn’t love the guy her finger will be electrified. Udi decides to leave the room and search for a bride in the outside world.

Udi is joined on his search by three others: Raphaela, who is now an up-and-coming model, his brother Lior and Lior’s childhood friend, Bechor.  Lior and Bechor are both gay, still in the closet and terrified by it. Udi looks for a bride amongst various unusual people (a transvestite, a dwarf, a Bedouin) who, for one reason or another, remind him of characters from Lord of the Rings.
