A former Israeli elite soldier tells the story of an act of retaliation perpetrated by the military, in which he was directly involved and responsible for killing a person. His face is concealed by a digital mask, yet still allows the viewer a glimpse of his facial expressions. The audience is meant to look him in the eye – and thereby gain perspective on themselves. Mograbi himself takes a different position, and approaches the question theatrically. He sings songs by Brecht/Weill accompanied by a small orchestra that narrates and alienates in the style of a Greek chorus. It is not only the state that serves to fuel the conflict; every individual plays a part.
