Awaiting

Due to the economic crisis and a sequence of terrorist attacks in the city of Tel Aviv , the filmmaker roams the streets during a period of three years, documenting what the people of Tel Aviv experienced: alienation, anxiety and sadness. This film is a poetic observation attempting to express these feelings alongside the hope for something or someone from the outside to step in and change the unbearable situation that exists.
