A young officer returns to his base after a daring mission. The cook's assistant, a religious Holocaust survivor, is envious of him. He believes that there is a place in heaven reserved for the brave officer who endangers his life for the sake of his Jewish brethren. The officer, in the spirit of the Zionist ethos, is secular and a non-believer. At the moment, he is so hungry that, for a plate of shaksuka, he is prepared to sign a contract transferring his secured place in heaven to the cook. Some forty years later, the present time of the movie, the tables have turned - the officer, now a retired general, is on his death bed in the hospital. His son who, to his father's horror, has found religion, is in a race against time. Before his father dies, he has to find that cook's assistant who, forty years earlier, bought his place in heaven.

"Dans l'ancienne forteresse croisée de Beaufort, située au Liban, l'armée israélienne maintient un avant-poste, symbole de l'une de ses guerres les plus contestées. Sur cette montagne perdue loin de tout, un jeune homme âgé de 22 ans, Liraz Liberti, commande la petite garnison. Entre sens du devoir et jeunesse, entre ennemi invisible et contexte militaire lié au retrait de Tsahal après dix-huit ans d'occupation, Liraz et ses hommes essaient tant bien que mal de remplir leur mission impossible. Chaque jour est imprévisible et la vie s'écoule, jusqu'à la nuit du 24 mai 2000, lorsqu'une gigantesque explosion illumine le ciel et détruit complètement l'avant-poste. Le film retrace les événements qui se sont réellement déroulés à Beaufort peu de temps avant le retrait d'Israël du Liban. Universel et emblématique, ce récit (plaidoyer contre le guerre) nous plonge dans ce que ces jeunes gens ont vécu, eux à qui on a demandé de donner leur vie pour une montagne qui ne tardera pas à perdre toute sa signification."
