With reinforcements hours away, Yoav leads his small unit in an against-all-odds fight to protect the untrained and ill-equipped Hermon intelligence soldiers. Not far away, Yoav’s girlfriend Dafna, a female officer, resists orders for all women to evacuate the frontlines. Meanwhile, the 87th is thrust into battle and suffers a devastating loss. Hoping to get back to his friends in the tank crew, Melakhi hitches a ride with Meni, who’s heading out of the city in search of his son.
