description

Joy is a young woman living in Tel Aviv who has a love-hate relationship with the city’s casual sex scene. Her whole world is her apartment, which happens to be located on the same street where her ex lives. After her failed and desperate attempts to get him back, Joy becomes inspired by Nir, a chatty intellectual type, who says and does whatever he wants. Dealing with themes of urban loneliness within the Y generation, PEOPLE THAT ARE NOT ME centres on the young people of Tel Aviv who yearn for intimacy and are also terrified by it.
