Storyline

17-year-old Meni wears only the most fashionable clothes, interested in music, loves the cinema and works as a rent boy. He had a baby from Mika, a young drug addict prostitute. He has an adoptive mother who is also a trans-gender prostitute and clients that contact him on his cell-phone. One night he meets Tal, also a hustler and they decide to spend the night together. During that night their lives get a new meaning, but can the little hope change the life they are used to from early age? In the morning they decide to meet later at the club. Until the awaited meeting, both of them will have to deal with their weary routine of clients, marginalized people and unexpected events. Written by Izik

Powerful drama that hits hard
19 June 2008 | by bkitchin-2See all my reviews

This movie is definitely *not* for everyone. As another comment says, it is both raw and brutal. Unlike too many movies that portray prostitution, this one is not wearing tinted glasses. But it is not all negative either. There are moments of tenderness and friendship. I'm glad that someone recommended this to me as it is not something that would have attracted me by its description. However, I rather like strong drama and this is definitely that. I thought the acting was quite good. I'm not familiar with these actors but they ought to go pretty far. The characters are portrayed as real people with individual personalities and quirks rather than stereotypes. You find yourself rooting for some of the main characters even as you recognize that there is not a lot of hope for them. However, you realize that not a lot of hope is not the same as no hope. Highly recommended if you like drama and are not repulsed by the, at times, rather brutal portrayal.
