In 1949, a Yemenite Jewish family that was flown to Israel during "Operation Magic Carpet", a clandestine operation that flew 49,000 Yemenite Jews to Israel the year after the state was formed, is forced to move to a government settlement camp in Israel, not realizing the challenges that lie on the horizon for new immigrants. Sallah, the family patriarch with a permanent scowl, discovers the hard way that Israeli bureaucracy could keep his family out of a permanent home for years -- and he vows to fight it...his way. His aversion to hard work and socialist values soon make him a deviant in the eyes of kibbutz leaders and government officials.
