Hofit is a waitress at a coffee shop in the city of Tel Aviv. She is totally sick of the big city; the boys, the beach, the sushi bars - she can't stand it no more. The thing is that: in Israel there are no other options. If you want to find a job or to live on your own - Tel Aviv is the default location.
One day Hofit finds an escape hatch to the dilemma - she will move over to 'Mini Israel': A miniature 1:25 size model of Israel, and live in a smaller and lighter Tel Aviv.

Some of her friends try to make her stay in real-size Tel Aviv. Among them are poet Roy 'Chicky' Arad and the paintings of Roee Rosen.

Malki Tesler plays Hofit, the genre is a Mockumentary.
