How would you raise your child, if you knew that one day their turn will come to hold a rifle?
As a liaison officer for the army, Ilana, a single mother, supports families who’ve lost their sons and daughters to the wars. But when the time comes for her own only son to wear the army uniform, she faces a life-changing dilemma.
How is it to grow up in a place where children are destined to be soldiers from the day they are born? The parents– all former soldiers themselves – know that one day, a liaison officer might knock on their door too.
Writer Niv Petel weaves a vivid and detailed familial relationship in this immersive physical mono-drama about the effects of National Service on everyday life.
