In Time of Favor Manachem, a handsome, stoic soldier in the Israeli Defense Force, is offered his own unit, made up of fellow students from Rabbi Meltzer’s West Bank Yeshiva. At the same time, Rabbi Meltzer plays matchmaker with his daughter, Michal, and star student Pini. It’s no surprise that Michal, strong-willed and independent, prefers Manachem’s silent strength to Pini’s over excitement. The love triangle knots up and the political tension raises throughout the film until everyone’s allegiances are tested in the end.

Sur cette montagne perdue loin de tout, un jeune homme âgé de 22 ans, Liraz Liberti, commande la petite garnison.

Chaque jour est imprévisible et la vie s'écoule, jusqu'à la nuit du 24 mai 2000, lorsqu'une gigantesque explosion illumine le ciel et détruit complètement l'avant-poste...

Chaque semaine, à l'aéroport de Tel-Aviv, le vol de la South African Airlines débarque discrètement deux sacs pleins de diamants bruts. Des bagagistes géorgiens décident de s'en emparer... Tous se connaissent et vivent dans le même quartier. Ils sont liés par le voisinage, par des dettes de jeu, par leurs relations avec les femmes qui sont rarement les leurs... Alors que le vol s'organise, tous vont devoir prendre leur rôle. Il faut exactement définir qui fera quoi - y compris quand la police aura découvert le pot aux roses... La mise au point du plan n'est déjà pas évidente, mais quand il faut en plus affronter les épouses, les maîtresses, les enfants, les rivalités, sans compter le vol lui-même, l'opération devient carrément épique.
