The Loners

The story of two „lone soldiers“, immigrants to Israel on their own, without families, one from Russia and the other from the Caucasus. Despite being highly motivated with a deep desire to excel and contribute to the country, the two fall into a predictable trap awaiting those who are foreign, alone and unprotected, without home, family and homeland. The film, in Russian and Hebrew, is based on events that took place in a military prison in Northern Israel in 1997.
