“THE LAST BAND IN LEBANON”
An Israeli Comedy
The Israel Defense Forces were in Lebanon for 18 years. They finally left the area in May 2000 – except for Shlomi, Asaf and Kobi, three members of a military rock band who woke up the morning after and discovered that they had been left behind.
Mixed up in a major drug smuggling scheme orchestrated by their corrupt commander, the three are stranded in a “no man’s land” between Israel and Lebanon and are clueless. With a gang of Hezbollah fighters on one side, disgruntled members of the South Lebanon Army on the other, and no combat experience, the three soldiers must find a way to return to Israel with a guitar as their only weapon.
It has just been announced that an American version of the film is in the making.
