A Feature film by Amos Gitaï

Produced by MP Productions

Release in France : 13/09/2000

Chaos prevails, as much among civilians as the military. They do not manage to find Egoz, but the next morning they come across Klauzner, a doctor trying to return to the Ramat David air base. Of their own free will, they decide to join an air force relief unit. Russo, their captain, is immediately placed in charge of combat teams accompanying rescue missions by helicopter.

From their very first mission, the team takes shape: Russo takes Weinraub and Gadassi in the combat team on board the Bell 205 piloted by Yoram, his co-pilot Kobi and the flight engineer Kauchinski. Doctor Klauzner joins them…
