Filling the Gap (Gaza 2014)

The setting is a utopian school with seemingly friendly children; a school without conflicts, without the intrusion of rules. The children learn! On a day, a new boy joins class, and soon all is  upside down. The newcomer sees his them as robots with no motivation to do “something else.”  No one tells a joke, no one spills his tea. Soon, individual acts of independence infect the group, the rules are bent or stretched, and the school public address system becomes the school radio program.
