Beaufort raconte les derniers jours du poste d'observation placé au sommet de la forteresse, avant l'évacuation du Liban par l'armée israélienne en 2000. Liraz Lebrati, l'officier chargé de cette position doit faire face à l'incompréhension de son unité, qui ne comprend plus l'utilité de leur mission, tout en respectant les directives qu'il reçoit de ses officiers supérieurs, de maintenir leur présence. La forteresse fait en effet l'objet d'attaques de mortiers ou de tirs de missiles quotidiens, sans que l'unité qui la défend ne puisse répondre aux tirs.

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.
