Split into two colliding narratives, this taut political drama from writer-turned-filmmaker Nadav Lapid presents a vision of Israel we rarely see. This is not the state in perpetual conflict with its neighbours, but one dealing with the class conflict which is unavoidable in a country where the disparity between rich and poor is so wide. In the film's first strand we follow the macho Yaron (Yiftach Klein), leader of an elite anti-terrorist unit. In the second story we meet radicalised students Shira (Yaara Pelzig) and Natanel (Michael Aloni), whose militant anarchist beliefs are reminiscent of Germany's notorious Baader-Meinholf Group. While the politics of the two groups are opposed, they share in common a certain bravado and vanity. First-time director Lapid confidently builds tension as the film crescendos to an inevitable showdown.
