When Yariv Mozer is called up by his unit in the Israeli army during the Second Lebanon War in 2006, one of the first things he does is bring a camera. With this in hand, he gives us a personal view of the war, with all of its confusion, chaos and disorganization. This first-hand look at the conflict focuses on the soldiers – their fears, their problems and their reactions to the contradictory orders and facts surrounding the war. No other army would allow such open discussion to be recorded. At one point the government ordered a large land operation into Lebanon at the same time it accepted a ceasefire. The result was the unnecessary death of many young men and the open revolt of some soldiers who refused to obey their orders.
