An internationally acclaimed animated documentary, filmmaker Ari Folman works to uncover his lost memories as an Israeli solider in the 1982 Lebanon War. Folman interviews fellow soldiers, old friends, and journalists to reconstruct his war experiences. His exploration reveals long suppressed guilt in his role in a massacre of a Palestinian refugee camp.
