Year of lab participation:
Three heroes from three different communities trying to provide for their families in every way possible and discovering- there is no “going out” of the project’s city of Hadera and its never-ending pressure
In the harsh city of Hadera, three interlocking stories will change the lives of their characters forever: Jackie (45) is up against time as he finds his best friend- after he took the money they invested in crypto, has gone missing. Oleg (22) has to take care of his mentally ill mother just as, out of nowhere- his dominate father comes back from ten years abroad. Adane (28) wants to solve his anxiety issues so he can provide for his family. Instead- he gets his younger brother and himself entangled with the police.
This film is for my friends and family, the tired souls we lost along the way, and those who stayed with us, still struggling to make ends meet. This film is for my childhood heroes - flawed and anxious individuals, filled with doubts and a false sense of security, trying to do what's right by their families, but not always succeeding. This is Israel as they experience it, down here, in the streets . A place of never-ending turmoil and pressure. This film is for them.
