520    Yael, Avishag, and Lea grow up together in a tiny, dusty 
       Israeli village, attending a high school made up of 
       caravan classrooms, passing notes to each other to 
       alleviate the universal boredom of teenage life. When they
       are conscripted into the army, their lives change in 
       unpredictable ways, influencing the women they become and 
       the friendship that they struggle to sustain. Yael trains 
       marksmen and flirts with boys. Avishag stands guard, 
       watching refugees throw themselves at barbed-wire fences. 
       Lea, posted at a checkpoint, imagines the stories behind 
       the familiar faces that pass by her day after day. They 
       gossip about boys and whisper of an ever more violent 
       world just beyond view. They drill, constantly, for a 
       moment that may never come. They live inside that single, 
       intense second just before danger erupts.
