Michael and Dafna experience gut-wrenching grief when army officials show up at their home to announce the death of their son Jonathan. Michael becomes increasingly frustrated by overzealous mourning relatives and well-meaning army bureaucrats. While his sedated wife rests, Michael spirals into a whirlwind of anger only to experience one of life’s unfathomable twists – a twist that can only be rivaled by the surreal military experiences of his son.

A film full of mystery and switchbacks is resolved in resounding style. – Ed Potton, (UK) Times.

It’s an extraordinary film, far from easy, ultimately thoughtful and hard to forget.” – Paul Byrnes, Sydney Morning Herald.
