On a winter night, at an open parking lot in Tel Aviv, seven men who served together in the Israeli army meet again. The reunion of the group brings back the atmosphere they know so well from three years of army service in the Special Forces. On the parking lot surface an outline of a fictional house is sketched and the ex-soldiers will re-enact the military manoeuvre of taking over a civilian house. Their weapons are replaced with a paper roll and the zone of combat by an open space in Tel Aviv. During their military service the soldiers were trained to perform this manoeuvre automatically. In the new context the action of the “take-over” is stripped down from its original context and becoming a performance.
