Hollywood “War films” occasionally filmed in Israel during the 80’s because of the need for military equipment and a “Biblical” landscape. Three Israeli producers tell their Israeli-Hollywood production stories juxtaposed by images of the real wars (Russian in Afghanistan, Americans in Normandy and Mujahidin in Afghanistan ) respectively. Cinema and real-life come together through ridiculous stories, all under the umbrella of the fabrication of images.
