War of Independence

At age 24, Alex is released from prison after serving seven years for two convictions of armed robbery. When he returns to his parents’ home he will face a series of unsettling questions: How do you advance in Israeli society as a Christian Russian immigrant, an ex-convict with a body covered with tattoos? Who will give you the opportunity to make something of your life? Who can you trust? Who will befriend you? Who will love you? The film follows Alex over the period of a year and a half as he attempts to free himself from the self-destructive impulses that up until now have always controlled his life.
