Synopsis

Based on a true story, a tale which portrays the love affair of two Israeli officers on the Israeli-Lebanese border. They are commanders, they are in love, and they are trying to find a place of their own within an oppressive and rigid system, that sends them to defend a cause they don't necessarily believe in. Yossi, the company commander, is an introverted guy, and largely, a man-of-the-system. However, Jagger, the platoon commander, is an open and much more liberated young man; as well, he is the star of the platoon. Yossi is determined to keep their love in secret. Whereas, Jagger, who is about to finish the service, believes that Yossi should leave the army with him. Shortly before departing for a dangerous ambush, the tension between the lovers becomes nearly explosive, as the pressures mount around them. Their relationship charts both the amusing and painful aspects surrounding the complicated and sensitive topic of gays in the military. It also illuminates the tragic life structure of young Israelis today, by presenting a lively group of young, military men and women, stuck somewhere other than where they want to be in life. In this time of their lives, they are normally supposed to be able to dance, to study, and to love. Instead, due to the mandatory army service and the complicated situation in the region, they have to devote their most beautiful years to their country, to be soldiers--unfortunately, to kill and be killed. In their diverse platoon, one can find: a soldier who believes in reincarnation, a chef who finds comfort in cooking a gourmet cuisine, and two young women who try to survive in a man's world. The only common denominator among this diverse group of 20-year-olds is their lust for life. The love affair between Yossi and Jagger only complicates what is an already precarious situation for these young soldiers.
