In 1984, four Palestinian terrorists hijacked a bus en route from Tel Aviv to Ashkelon, taking the passengers hostage and steering the bus toward Gaza. Through interviews with Israeli officials from that time and reenactments of the bus takeover and ensuing rescue attempt, the film portrays personal stories behind the hijacking and the subsequent investigation that rocked Israeli society.
