Chocolate Gangster

The film follows Azmi, 56, who recovered drug addict, who was imprisoned for drug trafficking, and was released from jail, with connections and knowledge, which led him to pursue a life of crime for many years.
Then, he decided to own up to his drug problem, clean up and leave the life of crime. Instead he started working with groups of youngsters, at-risk and normative youths and with NA patients.
The film takes us into the complexity of the Arab-Palestinian society in Israel, many of whom fall into the cycle of violence and drugs, which forces them to give up on both their collective, as well as their individual dreams.
