On 23 March 1957, Private Benjamin Lempel was killed at an Eilat naval base when his fellow soldier’s weapon accidentally went off. Lempel was a Chabad yeshiva student and had only turned 18 the previous week. Dvorit Shargal’s documentary short attempts to reassemble a play by play account of everything that happened in those awful few moments.
