From the Creators of the electrifying documentary ‘’The Ancestral Sin’’, comes a controversial new film (based on the material of the documentary series) about immigrant children from North Africa who were placed in vocational schools in periphery towns in Israel, in its first two decades. While the systematic policy was meant to keep newcomers from Asia and Africa at the bottom of the social strata, the second generation created a grassroots movement for social and economic justice, ultimately rejecting exclusion and neglect.
