When a couple of American young adults fly to Israel to visit the city of Jerusalem, a biblical nightmare falls upon them.
The Yom Kippur war started on October 6th, 1973. It is still an open wound in collective Israeli memory, This fact adds a certain dramatic effect to the war against the demons depicted in the climax of the movie, which also takes place during Yom Kippur.
They all believed in different gods, but for that night they were all dealing with the same devil.
The documentary in the beginning of the movie was allegedly filmed during Yom Kippur (day of atonement), the holiest day of the Jewish year. During this day every shop is closed, there are no radio and TV broadcast, it is a day dedicated exclusively to prayer and fasting. Under normal circumstances, no religious Jew would interview for a filming crew (the Italian priest). Then again, these are not normal circumstances.
