When Michael and Dafna receive the news that their son Jonathan has died at his military outpost, the family struggles to cope with their unfathomable loss. The film reveals the surreal events that led to Jonathan’s death, and circumstances that mirror a family and society trapped in an unending cycle of conflict. Inspired by the director’s own experience as a soldier in the Israeli army, Foxtrot portrays a tragic yet universal story of grief as it moves from trauma to catharsis.
