Hidden behind heavy metal doors of an old Jerusalem bomb shelter, there lies a tiny animation studio. Every week, children of Russian immigrants meet there to create a colorful carnival of monsters and earthquakes.

Wild Kids illuminates the subversive world of two talented teenage artists, Zalman and Aharon, through a period of adolescence as they discover their own identity. Zalman must decide whether to stay in Israel as Aharon strives for recognition of his radical artistic path. The studio leader, Max, lives art as an alternative way of life.
