In this first feature film directed by American-Israeli well-known actor and entertainer Mike Burstyn, written to commemorate the 50th anniversary of The Six Day War, an Israeli sergeant and a lost Egyptian soldier encounter each other in an abandoned UNEF post in the Sinai desert on the day after the Israeli/Egyptian cease fire. During an ensuing firefight both men get trapped in the abandoned post; the Israeli on the ground floor, the Egyptian on the upper. Outside stands the sergeant's jeep, awaiting the victor. Each have the same objective: to kill each other. But it soon becomes apparent that the only way each can survive is by forging an uneasy truce and cooperating with one another. Can they rise above the hatred that divides them long enough to stay alive?
