The most politically charged region on the planet is also the one place that punk rock continues to thrive in its most vital form. Forget about the watered-down punk-pop and turn your ears away from the radio, because when these rebellious Israeli youth plug into their amps, the dire politics of war fuel some of the most honest punk this side of 80s-era Washington D.C. Now both music fans and political junkies alike can take a look at the world from a seldom scene vantage point as filmmaker Liz Nord turns her lens on the generation of disillusioned musicians who have chosen to transform the tensions of their explosive land into a thriving music scene that offers momentary escape from the horrors of the outside world. Featured bands include Man Alive, Punkache, Chaos Rabak, Nikmat Olalim, and Useless I.D.
