In Migdal HaEmek, an isolated town in the north of Israel, we find three 17 years olds: Josh, who is disturbed and very aggressive but likes to be with his little dog; Linoy who wants
to be a famous actress but gets no support for her dreams; and David, the new kid in town who surrounds himself with books and music and blames his father for his mother’s death.

The three adolescents, forced to deal with violence at home and at school, live in a world of cruelty and beauty where the desire to kill or to die and the will to live, define their fates.
