An offbeat, comedic journey that delights and surprises, Karaoke follows Tova and Meir — an old married couple with 46 years of marriage and two grown daughters under their belt. 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 when their new upstairs neighbor, Itzik, invites them to his penthouse for a karaoke night. An enigmatic and charismatic bachelor, Tova and Meir fall hard for Itzik’s energetic lifestyle and irresistible charm. Before long, they find themselves competing against their other neighbors — and even each other — as everyone tries to win Itzik’s prized attention.
