Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
Critics hated the play this film was based upon and continued to hate the film itself. However, it was very popular with audiences. In the story, an Israeli post commander on the Suez receives a visit from his mother. She has all his leadership skills and more, and before long she is the true base commander. This results in military logic being contradicted, as mother's logic is different. Treaties require parity across the border with Egypt, and by the end of the film, the corresponding base in Egypt has recruited its own commanding mother.
