Tel Aviv – Beirut
Director Michale Boganim/France/Israel
1984. With war raging in Lebanon, young Israeli soldier Yossi is separated from his wife Myriam shortly after she gives birth to their son. In Lebanon, Yossi discovers the harsh reality and brutality of war alongside Fouad, a fighter with the South Lebanon Army, a militia backed by Israel in order to counter the advance of Hezbollah. The war scatters the families of the two soldiers on either side of the border, and continues to pursue them into the early 2000s, when the conflict flares up again, threatening the lives of their children.
