A winery night. Three soldiers are stranded on an isolated army base, caught in a card game they’ll never forget.A wintry Saturday night in an adjutancy office on Israel’s northern border. Three desk workers are playing poker. Green, the non-commissioned officer is three months before his army release. David, the cook, is about to sign on for professional service; he needs a father figure and always follows Green. Mano, the gate-keeper, just finished basic training and has an artificial eye; he reveals he can’t pay his debt, so Green offers to bet on his glass-eye. This nerve-racking card game turns Mano from a one-eyed prey into a rifle-carrying predator.
