Beirut,Lebanon, 1982, just months before the "Shalom Hagalil War", an Israeli pilot, Yoni (played by Stephen Dorff) is forced to abandon his plane after it was shot down and is captured by the PLO. Yoni meets a young Arab boy, Fahed (Abdallah El Akal) while in captivity and he convinces him to help him escape and get back to Israel in exchange for getting the boy back to his ancestral home. As they begin their dangerous and adventure packed journey back home, the boy and the soldier are, at first, enemies but over time through the adventures and experiences together, they gradually begin to form a special friendship. The movie goes to show that even through all the religious and ideological differences between the two, an unlikely friendship and trust can be built.
