Assi, a screenwriter and poet, is stuck in his personal life. He is full of doubt, disturbing thoughts, and existential restlessness. He is sentenced to community service due to a drunken-driving motorcycle accident in which he was involved. For his community service, he is sent to work with juvenile delinquents in Beersheba – the desert city in southern Israel – who are under house arrest and must attend sessions with Assi in the neighborhood shelter as a condition for their parole.

Their extreme personalities, riotous energy, and charm awaken in him curiosity and attraction; together, they break through the boundaries of the rehabilitative framework.

Co-presented by Israeli American Council
