The Extraordinaries is a docu – series that focuses on people and communities marginal to Israeli society, people who live outside the mainstream norms by choice or fate. The series is characterized by its non-judgmental standpoint which allows it to open doors that are usually closed to the media and deal with issues that are not usually spoken of. In this episode, the first of two, Roni Kuban accompanies extremely lonely people, young and old, women and men, who are willing to expose their situation openly although it involves so much shame and guilt. Kuban documents their journey to break the walls of their loneliness or accept it and be reconciled with it.
