Michael and Daphna get official notice from the army that their son, Jonathan, has been killed in the line of duty. While they are mourning his death and trying to deal with the crushing loss, four soldiers are trudging through crushing boredom at a far-away and godforsaken checkpoint, including the a very-much-alive Jonathan. This film by Samuel Maoz is a philosophical diatribe on fate, a drama about the relationships between generations, and a powerful anti-war satire about the absurdity and meaninglessness of any way all at once.

The film received the Grand Prix from the jury of the 2017 Venice Film Festival and was nominated by Israel for the Oscar.
