Synopsis

Israel's bold, controversial submission for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar confronts the absurdity of war through the ordeal of a young Israeli soldier and his grief-stricken parents. Structured in reality- shifting chapters, this triptych of loss and trauma opens as a couple learns their son was killed in the line of duty, news that proves to be not what it seems. The action jumps to a remote checkpoint, where Jonathan Feldman and his comrades fight boredom in a surreal landscape. In the final act, a devastating truth is unraveled. Winner of 2017 Israeli Academy Awards for Best Film and Best Director.
