The Sinai Desert, the day after the Israeli/Egyptian ceasefire, June, 1967. An Egyptian soldier, the only survivor of his destroyed convoy, manages to reach an abandoned UNEF outpost in the middle of the desert. Circumstances bring an Israeli sergeant on his overheated Jeep to the same outpost. Getting off his vehicle to seek shelter from the blazing sun, he is surprised by the Egyptian. During the ensuing firefight both men get trapped in the abandoned post; the Israeli on the ground floor, the Egyptian on the upper. Outside stands the Jeep, awaiting the victor.
