Synopsis:

Some were born here, some moved to Israel when they were very young. They all have lived most of their lives here, yet they are still labeled as foreigners. This project is a collection of three short stories that present a moment of alienation through stop motion animation. A small, everyday moment in which they felt as though their 'foreignness' is what defines them, even though they have a strong urge to be part of this country - Israel.
