About The Film
Get a behind-the-camera look at the less-known aspects of the very public lives of four Israeli YouTubers: Moti Taka, one of the busiest singers in Israel today, who visits Ethiopia for the first time with his mother, Dalia; Suzi Boum, a.k.a Lior Israelov, a successful, well-known drag queen, who was born and raised in a religious family in southern Tel Aviv; Chen Halfon, a 25-year old religious mother of three, who is one of the few Orthodox YouTubers in Israel; and Hannah Ziad, an Arab-Israeli style influencer with about half a million followers, who reveals a complex family story about her father's death. A surprising look at Israel's diverse, young "web stars" representing the country's complex cultural output.
