Nadav Levitan’s film, based on a script by Assi Dayan, is a comedy set around the Israeli melting pot in a women’s basic training military base. Young women from all over the country end up at the base, including “rough as nails” Shuli (Hanna Azoulay Hasfari); the posh and entitled Niva (Chelli Goldenberg); Karen, the new immigrant from Canada (Caroline Langford); “fat” Anna who is also a new immigrant from the Soviet Union (Orna Rotenbeg), and “hippie” chick Shirley (Irit Frank). At the end of four weeks of basic training that see the girls through a mix of equally amusing and heart-breaking moments, including bullying by Division Commander, Talia (Anat Topol), the rookies who may have come from a wide range of different cultures and backgrounds emerge as a tightknit family.
