On the eve of the second Passover holiday, a squad of five commandos from the PFLP cuts the northern border fence and penetrates into Kibbutz Misgav-Am. Their mission is to take hostage the Kibbutz members in order to negotiate the release of prisoners held in Israeli jails. But that night, most Kibbutz members are away on a concert and the Kibbutz is half empty, a light comes on in one of the small kibbutz houses, making it the target for the commandos to break into. When they realize this is not a family home but rather the dormitory for the very young children of the kibbutz, it’s already too late.
