Re-enactment battles between historical armies and contemporary armies are regularly held in the European forests. Combatants are civilians, that freely choose which army to join. In these battles, Instead of live ammunition, they use ceramic bullets. This film is a two years documentary journey, in which I joined both the training and battles held by military re-enactors in Europe, with the intention of recording a meeting between re-enactors of Israeli Defence Forces and those of the German Wehrmacht.
