Naf – A Street Kid is the shocking and revealing documentation of one homeless boy's life in the streets of Jerusalem over a two and a half year period. The hero of this drama is 18 year-old Naf (short for Naftali Javetz), aged 18, who has lived in the streets from the age of 14, who has been raped, stabbed, has smoked soft drugs and been arrested and tried for dealing drugs.
As if all that were not enough for one boy, he has conducted battles for street youth, fought in the courts to bring the man who assaulted him to judgment, and finally insisted on fulfilling his dream -- to become a rapper, to perform and to become famous.
Charismatic, deceptive and charming, with a thousand faces and hairdos, Naf personifies the mutable character needed to survive. One minute he is manipulative, a tireless consumer of attention, and the next he is exceptionally candid. But for a boy who has grown up on the streets, constant change is simply reality.

The shocking and revealing documentation of a homeless boy's life over a two and a half year period. Naf (Naftali), is an ultra-orthodox bot thrown out of his parents' home for being a "bad apple". From the age of 14 he wanders the Jerusalem streets, and is exposed to crime, violence, and sexual assault. Only fighting keeps him alive ;; fighting the city council as a representative of homeless youth ;; fighting the man who sexually abused him through the court system, fighting the radio stations to convince them to play his music. This is a child not only fighting for life, but for self respect and a future. This is the struggle for survival experienced by all our homeless children – as seen through the eyes of NAF – A street kid.
