Any citizen of Israel who is of age, in good health, under forty, and not currently studying at an Orthodox seminary is liable, at any time, to be drafted into the army. When not on active duty, citizens are considered to be members of a reserve unit. In this film, Miki (Gil Frank) has been living an indolent, sensual life when his reserve unit is called into active duty to fight in Lebanon. In this drama, this handsome man's happy-go-lucky thoughtlessness is brought up short when he sees an army gravesite containing hundreds of holes for the expected casualties. Later, his looks cause a female journalist from the U.S. to feature him in some of her stories, and between his vanity and her hot temper, a lot of conflict gets generated on the way to their becoming lovers.
