The Loners

Directed by: Renen Schorr
88 Minutes, 2009, Drama

When two loner Russian soldiers are caught smuggling arms and arrested, they do not want to lose their honor as soldiers. Despite being accused of a crime that is unforgivable in military society, they want to hold onto their dignity and to go through an honorable military trial. The military is not at all concerned with their wishes, and pushes to get them tried as civilians. Bluchin and Glory, the soldiers, are forced into a civilian prison—and decide to retaliate.

This human drama, in Russian and Hebrew, is based on events that took place in a military prison in northern Israel in 1997, and shows what lengths people will go in desperation.
