In the State of Israel, every national – when turning 18 – faces mandatory military service. Systema follows Eva, a member of the Israeli national synchronised swimming team, in her final year of civilian life before enlisting with the IDF. Ohad Milstein’s documentary shadows the national team and in the process, examines the dynamics between the individual and the group, the former’s efforts to find a place for themselves in society, and their systematic transition – as part of their coming-of-age journey – from a localised system of codes and norms to an absolutist, all-encompassing military rulebook.
