Long lost but now found – An American Hippie in Israel in 35mm! 

American hippie-soldier Mike (Asher Tzarfati) travels to Israel shortly after his involvement in the Vietnam War. He gets to know three Israelis — stage actress Elizabeth (Lily Avidan), a female hippie friend (Tzila Karney), and her Hebrew-speaking boyfriend Komo (Shmuel Wolf). They join a bigger group of hippies and barely survive when a duo of stalking mimes gun down the crowd. The quartet flee to an uninhabited island along with a goat. They settle down and wake up the following sunrise to find that their boat and goat have vanished. The shark-infested waters make it impossible for them to swim to the mainland. Suddenly, they turn from friends to fiends as they attempt to kill each other.
