ISRAEL – 2014 – 100 MIN – COLOUR - FEATURE - IN HEBREW WITH ENGLISH SUBTITLES
A FILM BY TALYA LAVIE

Zohar and Daffi are best friends; serving in an administration office at an artillery base in the south of Israel. They share a bunk bed and since both of them don't get along with others, they practically spend all their time together, sharing their secrets, their meals, and their passion for computer games.

As storm clouds gather over the south, Daffi does all she can to be transferred away from the hated remote base, trying to obtain her dream of being relocated to Tel Aviv. Zohar, on the other hand, doesn't seem to care so much about where she's stationed. Her main concern is to lose her virginity. She is secretly in love with an officer but never dares walking up to him. Terrified by the possibility of being left alone in the desolated base without her best friend — Zohar will try to prevent Daffi from leaving.
