1989, the first Palestinian Intifada. In an era of increasing demands for independence, the State of Israel sends young soldiers to oversee the Arab population in the Occupied Territories. During a routine patrol, one of them gets killed. The 18-year-old Tomer, together with other three young companions stationed in Gaza, is commanded to take up position on the roof top of a Palestinian family in order to keep a close watch on the neighborhood and find the responsible. The rookies will have to find their place in the chaos surrounding them, coming to a new insight not only about the political but existential situation as well.
