It Kinda Scares Me

Tomer wears two hats as both the manager of a trendy Tel Aviv coffee house and as the youth director for a group of teenagers in the small town of Azur. The film explores Tomer’s personal odyssey over a period of two years as he helps the jaded youth group members navigate moments of estrangement and violence, and eventually helps them stage an original play at the local theatre. The creative process is one of both hurt and healing, as the confusion and chaotic inner world of the kids is revealed through questions of their social and sexual identities. As they open up, so must Tomer.
