An educational short produced by the Israel Film Service and commissioned by the country’s antidrug taskforce. Alon Aboutboul plays 16-year-old Avi, a teen musical prodigy and an exceptionally gifted guitarist who finds himself at a critical juncture: accept a music producer’s offer to join a new band and shoot to stardom or let himself be dragged down with his friends to a life of crime and drugs. It’s a tough choice and Avi ends up opting for the latter. Following a particularly traumatic drug trip, he realises he can’t carry on existing in both worlds and must make a decisive choice between music and drugs.
