Synopsis : At the foot of an ancient Crusader fortress in Lebanon, stands Beaufort Castle and military post. Young men have died here for the last 1300 years: Saracens and Crusaders and most recently Israelis and Lebanese. It’s the site of one of the most controversial battles of the Israeli Army’s occupation of Southern Lebanon. Israeli soldiers from one of the last units to withdraw in 2000 break down the “macho soldier myth” and in intimate, unprecedented detail recall their thoughts and feelings. This is the story of any battle in any war and about a heroic myth which generations of Israelis have been raised upon and given their lives for.
