Chin, Sasha, Dong-Dong, Marisol and Annabelle met at the Adult Language School. Gathered from different parts of the world in one classroom, they are about to start a new life in Israel.
Director David Ofek follows them for over 6 months in and out of the classroom. The result is a document about struggle to belong, the difficulties of the foreigner and the observation of the 'other' on Israeli society. David Ofek lets his protagonists lead the plot, their gaze, at times funny, at times sad, paints daily reality with irony. But beyond the obvious differences, the human commoon denominator of longing and love, triumphs time and again.
