A Jewish Mafia-like family is running a prostitution ring, selling "protection," and operating gambling casinos - more or less with impunity, and at peace with their Arab counterparts - until a young gangster decides to pit the two ethnic factions against each other. Jewish cultural and religious events are celebrated by the Jewish gangsters, who promote family traditions - in contrast to the police inspector who has no family and is out to do them all in.
