    • Synopsis
    • On June 5, 1967, the armies of Egypt, Syria, and Jordan amass on Israel's borders, threatening annihilation. Six days later, the war ends with Israel’s decisive victory—conquests of Gaza, Sinai, and the West Bank, tripling the tiny country’s size. Streets brim with joy, but behind the euphoria and a proud new national narrative of invincibility are other voices. One week after the war, author Amos Oz audio-records intimate conversations with Israeli soldiers fresh from the battlefield. These provocative tapes, censored until now, are the core of a startling film about the tragic paradox of Zionism and the contradictions that arise when a people seeking freedom turn occupier, when David becomes Goliath.
