100 Minutes, 2005

Smadar and Mirit, both 18 years old, are assigned to patrol the streets of Jerusalem together, as part of their military service. They are assigned to detain any Palestinian passerby, check their papers, and register their details in special forms. However, the two young girls are immersed in the tidbits of their own lives- their romantic crushes, their breakups, and the relationship evolving between the two of them. Until one day, Jerusalem’s political rally is forced upon them.
