Sisters In Arms

This is the story of five women who, in their youth, chose to leave the comfortable city life to pursue the ideological struggle of the settler movement. For more than 14 years, they firmly kept their yearly tradition of taking a holiday together, far from their husbands, their work obligations and their many children. This is how they created for themselves a haven in the midst of the messianic fervor that characterized life on the Samarian settlement of Elon Moreh.Two years ago, a terrorist succeeded in penetrating the settlement, and murdered one of the women in her home. This event unraveled the fragile tapestry of the female camaraderie, and each went on her own separate way. The film brings the four remaining women back to their traditional vacation as they examine their individual and collective journeys.
