When Michal (Noa Kooler), a 32 year old Orthodox Jewish woman is blindsided by her dour fiancé’s decision to call off their wedding with only a month’s notice, she trusts in God to provide her groom.
Unwilling to return to lonely single life, Michal decides to continue with her wedding plans, believing Mr. Right will appear by her chosen date. After all, the wedding hall is booked for the 8th day of Hanukah and all the guests are invited — all that’s missing is the groom. She buys a wedding dress, as her skeptical mother and sister look on with trepidation. During Michal’s month-long search for a spouse, she enlists the help of two matchmakers, goes on a series of disastrous blind dates and finds an unexpected connection with a charming but utterly unsuitable pop star (Oz Zehavi) – all the while dismissing pleas by friends and family that she reconsider. As the day of the ceremony grows closer, Michal puts everything on the line.
