You can’t buy love, but you can try. Four country boys get down to business
Milk & Honey tells the story of four childhood friends from a small village in the Galilee who stumble upon an original business idea which will make the most of their various abilities – they open an escort service exclusively for women, the first of its kind in the country. The service becomes a surprising success around the Galilee, while the four friends struggle with their new and challenging identities as gigolos.
Every episode advances three or four plotlines, following the adventures of the four friends, the women they meet in their personal lives as well as their professional/sexual encounters – and the fine line separating the two.
By turning the spotlight on the bedroom, the show sharply exposes the power play and tension between genders, classes and different sectors in Israeli society.
The men in the show see selling their bodies as a tempting and lucrative business opportunity, but paradoxically, it’s their dubious business that forms a bond of solidarity between them.
