Mivtza Savta (Operation Grandma) is a satirical comedy about the Israeli military and about kibbutz life. The story revolves around three brothers: Alon (34), a no-nonsense army officer; Benny (30), a brilliant electrician; and Idan (22) a wimpy tour guide. The story is told from Idan's point of view. The three brothers want to bury their beloved grandmother in the kibbutz cemetery. Because Alon has a secret security operation set for that same day, they have to work on a tight schedule so he plans the burial like a military operation — hence the title. A series of mistakes and mishaps complicate things with hilarious results.
