Directed by: Vidi Bilu

The two heroes of this film are Smadar (Smadar Sayar) and Mirit (Neama Shendar), eighteen-year-old Israelis who are currently in the army. They are completely different and cannot stand each other: Smadar is decisive, temperamental and outgoing while Mirit is an introverted and shy girl afraid of authority. Since their job is to patrol the streets of Jerusalem and identify Palestinians, they cannot escape each other.
