Cast & Crew
During the 1967 Israeli-Arab War, Capt. Uri Litman, commander of a small Israeli task force, is assigned to knock out a vital Arab radar installation just before a major Israeli offensive. Nira, an Israeli, finds herself drawn into the conflict when she uses her father's small boat to land Litman's men on a deserted coast of the Sinai Peninsula. She is forced to sink the boat and join the patrol to avoid being captured by the Egyptians. Though caught under enemy fire, Litman and his remaining men infiltrate the radar station. The mission is successful, allowing Israeli airplanes to proceed to their target of Sharm al-Sheikh.
