Travel with a failing school boy on his adventures in military school in 1972, during the time of the six day war.English Subtitles. Available in PAL(EURO) format ONLY.
Somewhat autobiographical, the film opens right after the 6 day war, when Israelis euphoric with victory and the kids dress up as the captured Western Wall in Jerusalem. Now it is 1972. The film centers on a young boy, who is failing in school, and grounded from going on Passover trips with his classmates. Instead he must visit private academies (including military schools) with his parents, who want him to do better in school. Foreshadowing to the coming war in 1973 and the defeat of euphoria.
