In May 2004 an IDF armored personnel carrier was destroyed in Gaza Strip,
and all the soldiers on board were killed. Shortly after, rescue soldiers were
called to the scene to look for the remains of their friends.
Rainbow is a story about Michael, a squad commander who leads his soldiers into a Palestinian house which is looking at the location of the destroyed carrier. His orders were to secure the parameter and defend the soldiers sorting through the sand in search of their friends remains. Michael’s team is accompanied by a military photographer who quickly becomes a burden, and
the longer they stay in the Palestinian house, the more complicated the situation becomes.
