FOR YOU WERE ONCE STRANGERS is the untold story of a fracture, a rift within Israeli society as it tries to come to terms with a deportation order targeting 700 South Sudanese refugees. It is the story of a spark igniting a deeply polarizing issue that has been ignored for too long: how to handle the first massive wave of illegal immigrants the young country has ever confronted.
