Two European Jews, Holocaust refugees who have been swiftly transformed into Israeli soldiers, are roasting in the sun on a remote desert hill at the height of the 1948 War of Independence. The tanned and muscular Mintz denies his European past and reinvents himself as a Hebrew-speaking Israeli warrior.  His compatriot, the bony, pale, Lolek, has been dragged into the war by mistake, solely wishing to search for his European sweetheart, Nina, who awaits him in Haifa. HOMELAND, a film set at a major turning point in Jewish and Israeli history, examines the contrast between the Disapora and new Zionist Jew.
