Israel 2020, 85 min, Hebrew, Hebrew & English subtitles

This sociological journey back in time began over twenty years ago when several families were evicted from their homes. They got together and squatted in an abandoned building in Jaffa for two years. The children of all ages who lived there grew up around violence, poverty, and drugs—but also solidarity. They saw the power of people fighting the establishment for their right to a home.
They became documentary subjects for the first time in 1999, in Yael Kipper and Einat Fishbein’s film The Two Yossi (screened at the very first Docaviv Festival). Now, their journey continues: what has become of them? What chances does a poverty-stricken child have to make it in the world?
