The documentary Lone Soldier tells the story of the nineteen-year old Rebecca: a Jewish Dutch girl who decides to exchange the safe city of The Hague for the army of Israel. Rebecca leaves for a place where she doesn't know anyone, to fight for a country where she has barely been. Every year thousands of people from all over the world come to Israel to become part of the Israel Defense Forces (IDF). They are called 'Lone Soldiers'. Currently, little is known about the group, mainly because the Israeli army brings out little information. This documentary tells the story of Rebecca, but also that of thousands of others.
The partner of the screening is the Embassy of the Netherlands in Poland
