The film is about young people who refuse to give in to their circumstances, how they try to change the situation and prove their right to exist, as they are, in any way they can. Four young immigrants have a rap band. They live in a poor neighborhood in a peripheral Israeli town and rap for them is not only the music, it is a chance to be seen and heard. One of them, Andriey have a home crisis – he has to take care about small sister and all the bills, because his father is in hospital. He can’t juggle caring for sister, rehearsing, and working all at once.
