This story takes place in a military boot camp in Israel, where military service is also compulsory for women. Anna tries to prove her capability as an instructor by forcing military discipline on trainees. However, it is not easy to control the trainees, and the feud between her and them escalates. Anna cannot identify with the trainees, and also she has problems getting along with her fellow instructors. The director addresses the conflict between the instructors, who tend to be from wealthy families, and the trainees, who tend to be from low-income families. Through Anna, she points out that at the root of this conflict lies mutual misunderstandings. At the same time, she points to the possibilities of understanding one another. (Jay SOHN)
