The director of the award-winning ‘Lebanon’ grapples with the complexities of the Israel-Palestine conflict in this masterful balance of heightened drama and absurdist humour.
An Israeli family are informed that their son has been killed whilst on duty. They are devastated. But then, not everything is as it appears. From a searing and emotive opening through to a series of surreal moments at the front line of a political quagmire, Maoz’s film is quite unlike anything you’ll have seen.

★★★★ "Maoz creates a deadpan j'accuse, razor-edged and hugely original" - Danny Leigh, Financial Times
