Israel 2015, 35 min, Hebrew and Russian, Hebrew & English subtitles
Sashka is a sweet 13-year-old boy, with an optimistic outlook on life. Born in Sderot to Russian immigrants, his elder brother is already serving in the army, when another military operation breaks out along the Gaza border nearby. Meanwhile, the Welfare and Social Services have decided to send Sashka off to a boarding school, far away from home. As he slowly discovers the burden placed on him, Sashka is sucked into an accelerated, sobering coming-of-age experience.
