A listless screenwriter finds purpose when he s sentenced to community service work with delinquent youth. He aspires to save them through art, but what if the teens don t wish to be saved?
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.
