Three consecutive stories, The Substitute, The Virgin and The Commander, recount the events of an administration office at a remote army base in the Israeli desert. The stories compose a military epic of power-struggles, intrigues and a friendship on trial.
But unlike the traditional war genre films, Zero Motivation brings to center-stage the military’s female clerical staff. The film depicts the three soldiers’ real – and surreal, comical – and gloomy journey inside the maze of military bureaucracy. For a staple-gun in the first act is sure to go off in the third.
