June 1982, Lebanon: A lone tank and a platoon of Israeli soldiers are dispatched to search a hostile town that has already been bombarded by the Israel Air Force. It should be a quick and easy job, but their simple mission soon spirals out of control into a nightmarish deathtrap. The ensuing insanity is witnessed through the eyes of the four young Israeli tank crew, all aged just 20, as they try to survive a seemingly impossible situation. Writer-director Samuel Maoz dramatically revisits one of the most unforgettable and shocking moments of his life in this blisteringly honest true story of the conflict between the basic instinct to survive and human conscience. The critically-acclaimed Lebanon is a stunningly personal portrayal of four boys whose lives are indelibly changed by the madness of war.
