Female Israeli soldiers are posted to a remote desert base and spend their time pushing paper until they can return to civilian life. A smash hit in Israel and winner of the Best Narrative Feature Award at the Tribeca Film Festival, ZERO MOTIVATION is a unique, sometimes dark and often hilarious portrait of everyday life for a unit of young female soldiers. Playing out like M*A*S*H meets 'Orange is the New Black', the film details the power struggles of three women with different agendas.
"First time feature writer/director Talya Lavie impressively creates a witty and tangible dramedy about working women hampered by their own stagnation." - Candice Frederick, Reel Talk Online
"A delightful, sharp dramedy that skewers the topic from every angle imaginable." - Tirdad Derakhshani, Philadelphia Inquirer
