Six years after returning from the Six Day War with a battle shock, Menashe realizes he will never be the man he used to be before the war. He can’t communicate with others, and spends his days driving around for long hours. The young family he created collapses due to his lack of communication. At a time when PTSD was not recognized as a medical condition, his wife, struggles to get help, while their 10 year-old tries to understand what happened to his father and why he is different. When the Yom Kippur War breaks out, and Menashe is sent again to the battle field, the small family crumbles to the dust. Best Feature Film Sydney World Film Festival.
