This short film by Renen Schorr (Late Summer Blues) which he made during his film and television studies at Tel Aviv University is an adaptation of Shraga Gafni’s controversial 1949 short story about a group of combatants who go off on a suicide mission during the 1948 Israeli War of Independence. The film was shot as a Western and is heavily influenced by the photographs of Robert Capa and the 1973 Valley of Tears battle that took place during the Yom Kippur War in the Golan Heights region.
