Synopsis
Unknowns is the story of a group of boys, living in the margins of the Israeli society and passing their time in a school for at-risk youth. One day, after a local girl is raped, the boys become the immediate suspects, their already unbalanced world gets completely disturbed.

Unknowns deals with the question of the chance these boys have in order to break the cycle of violence they’re in. This is a story of cruel and magical friendship between boys who will sacrifice anything just to avoid their own destiny.

Note from the artistic direction
Tawfik Abu Wael, Arab Israeli creator, already well-known for its work on the tough series Our Boys, comes back with an ensemble and intimate drama with a very high quality of writing, framing and character building. An extremely well elaborated work in which everything is constantly on the verge of collapse.
