A zany, dark, & comedic portrait of everyday life for a unit of young, female Israeli soldiers. The Human Resources Office at a remote desert base serves as the setting for this cast of characters who bide their time pushing paper and battling in computer games, counting down the minutes until they can return to civilian life. Amidst their boredom and clashing personalities, issues of commitment - to friendship, love, and country - are handled with humor and sharp-edged wit.Written by

A successful Public Relations attempt for Israel Army
This film is a very successful attempt to polish the bloody image of Israel Army and nothing more. You can laugh at some points if you can forget or don't know anything about the realities of Gaza Strip and Palestine.
There is nothing interesting in terms of cinematography, script and acting. We can summarize the movie's message as: "We are not murderers but young, nice girls and boys." If we believe in this movie military service in Israel Army is absolute fun.
Audience reactions during the screening proves that this attempt is a successful one.
