Hamaavak 16

In 16th Hamaavak st. (the struggle) there are five apartments. During 24 hours, we encounter the daily struggle of every one of the inhabitants of that building. Every door and every window have a story- In the basement lives Golan who wants to buy Inbal of her employer, a plain prostitute which he's in love with; On the 1st floor Yehudit tries to raise her only son Udi, and protect him even from his unsuccessful father, Hezi; In the apartment above her Daniel is about to fulfill his long waited dream to marry Lily, who is still in love with his older brother Alex which comes to the wedding; lily’s sister, Galia, is not sure if she wants to bare her husband’s baby, but an emergency visit to Dafna and Arik’s cowshed changes her view; in the next door lives the lonely Sara, her grandkids Omri and Maayan come to the neighborhood where they grew up to take her to a resting home in the center. Our building is the neighbor building in the neighbor neighborhood in the neighboring city. Each of us will find the story that talks to him and he identifies with, because it's a piece of life, a short 24 hour piece that tell five stories in one building- Hamaavak 16
