Haim Hatuel started piercing his kids at the age of 5. Today, they are Israeli fencing champions. It all started a day after his release from the army, when he saw an ad that changed his life. He was accepted into a fencing academy, a social sport initiative aimed at turning street kids into law abiding citizens who would go on to pursue a career. Over the next 45 years, Haim has built a fencing empire in Acre. Just before the Rio Olympic Games in 2016, the family empire is about to crash.
