Igal Gazit, an unemployed film director from Tel Aviv, moves to Sderot and takes up a teaching job at the local high school. His first meeting with the students doesn’t go well: they make fun of the ‘enlightenment’ he brings from Tel Aviv. Igal, however, intends to see though his pledge that all the kids will pass the State Film Exams. The road to fulfilling that promise is one that the students will never forget.

Bolstered by a strong ensemble cast of young actors, this coming-of-age story ponders, from the next generation’s viewpoint, the Middle East’s shattered dreams and future hopes.
