Based on director Amos Gitai’s experiences in the 1973 Yom Kippur War, this story is told from the perspective of a young Israeli student who has been instructed to join a special military unit on the Golan Heights shortly after the fighting begins — as he and his helicopter crew embark on dangerous emergency evacuations of injured troops under enemy fire.
"A classic war film, at once elegiac and immediate, that takes you smack into the chaos of combat." - Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times
