Synopsis

War drama based on Israeli filmmaker Amos Gitai's personal experiences in the 1973 Yom Kippur war. Weinraub (Liron Levo) and Ruso (Tomer Russo) are two young Israeli reserve soldiers who suddenly find themselves at war after Egypt and Syria launch attacks on Sinai and the Golan Heights. Enlisted into a helicopter search and rescue team, their job is to bring wounded soldiers back from the frontline for medical treatment. What begins as a rite of passage unfolds into a surreal and tortured nightmare as the men come face to face with the horror and irrationality of war.
