In an unusual mixed form, images that are drawn on a flat surface are animated in stop motion in the three-dimensional space. In greyish tones and a style that was inspired by Picasso's anti-war painting Guernica, the film shows the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Checkpoints, bulldozers and a suicide attempt in the name of God; a child is born in appalling circumstances. With dramatic music composed by co-director Uri Kranot.
