This was the first feature film that Micha Shagrir produced. Shooting for the film started before the Six Day War and was edited once the war was over. It did very poorly at the box office. The film describes a secret mission of Israeli soldiers into enemy territory where they seek to capture a terrorist. The journey eastward sharpens the relationships amongst the soldiers as well as their attitude toward the Arab. The film was then dubbed “an Eastern”, like a “western”. Some of the actors were just starting out at the time, like Zeev Revach and Eli Cohen. The film was a box office flop, and forced the director to take on new productions just to recoup costs.
