Take one disbanded rock band, the final withdrawal of troops from Lebanon, add an ambitious IDF police officer and her quest to catch a corrupt drug-smuggling commander red-handed, and you have Israel’s hottest new comedy hit! Three reserve soldiers with no combat experience must find their way back to Israel while caught between Hezbollah fighters and disgruntled members of the South Lebanon Army while only armed with a guitar.
