126 Minutes, 2007, Drama

After spending 18 years in a heavily fortified mountain fortress deep in occupied Lebanon, the last group of Israeli soldiers enduring constant bombardment at Beaufort, a former stronghold of ancient crusaders, receives orders to abandon their post, detonate the bunkers in which they’ve tenuously clung to life and victory, and come home.

Amid increased shelling from Hezbollah, the fort’s brash, impossibly young commander Liraz (Oshri Cohen) struggles to keep himself and his men safe from a faceless enemy that would turn withdrawal into massacre and transform a just cause into a lost cause.
