ABOUT THE SERIES
Israel is a war-ridden country that has claimed tens of thousands of victims. Over the years the public has leaned on the ethos of sacrifice. Generations of mothers send their sons to war without asking questions. They play their assigned roles. This film tells the story about the first time a female civil movement challenged that prevailing ethos in Israeli history when mothers to soldiers protested against the ongoing war in Lebanon. After three years of protests, in the year 2000, the Israeli defense army pulls out of Lebanon and ends an 18-year-long war within one swift night.
Its a film about a groundbreaking female protest in a struggle for peace. A feminist movement that inspired masses and was able to end war.
A female-driven, grassroots protest movement takes on the military establishment and challenges the patriarchal society of Israel to stop a bloody war that has been raging for years.
