Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
This melodrama focus its unrelenting attention on the conflict between three generations of Israelis as they attempt to cope with being cooped up together while they head to a military base at the beginning of the intafada or Palestinian uprising. The idealistic grandparents, in the spirit of the earlier kibbutzim, have one view of the situation, their successful American businessman son and his wife (they are only here for a visit) have quite another, and the grandchildren, soldiers in the Israeli army, have another. Given the ferocity of their arguments, it is a wonder they remain together, but some hint of the love the bear for one another comes through.
