At the tender age of 10, Yoni Schreiber is a boy beyond his years; his mother is a Holocaust survivor, his father a veteran of Israel's War of Independence. After being assaulted by a youth gang, Yoni and his friends plot their revenge, a battle of honor, to fall on Independence Day.

Set in the tense atmoshere of 1950's Israel, this incisive film about rival groups of adolescents raises hard questions about heroism, nationalism, and friendship.
