An offbeat, comedic journey that delights and surprises, Karaoke follows Tova and Meir, a standard aging couple with 46 years of marriage and two grown daughters. They live a comfortable life, with Meir currently on sabbatical from his academic professorship, and Tova running a boutique shop. Their lives get a jolt of excitement from their neighbor from above, Itzik, who invites them to his penthouse for karaoke nights. Tova and Meir fall hard for Itzik’s energetic lifestyle. They enter into a competition amongst their other neighbors and soon themselves, trying to win Itzik’s attention. Sasson Gabay (The Band’s Visit) as Meir, Lior Ashkenazy (Footnote, Late Marriage) as Itzik and Rita Shukrun as Tova are the dream cast of this unique comedic drama from a director worth following.
