Israeli award-winning documentary When the Smoke Clears: A Story of Brotherhood, Resilience, and Hope is now available for streaming on Amazon Prime.


The film tells the account of three young IDF soldiers, who, after encountering psychological and physical wounds, manage to find contentment and optimism while reintegrating into normal, civilian life.



It was featured in 14 film festivals and won the “Best Documentary Feature” at the 2018 San Diego GI Film Festival.


Rebecca Shore, who produced, directed and wrote the film, based the story on three young men: Gil, Ofer and Elad.


These IDF combatant soldiers experience the depths of anguish and pain while doing their national service and – through empathizing with others also in need – manage to overcome their trauma and find a deeper level of inner peace.


Even though they have gone through the bleakest period in their lives, they are able to stay optimistic and positive by finding a way to perceive themselves as heroes, both on and off the front line.


Shore, from Imagination Productions, has written and directed several productions reflecting on Israeli society, including Israel Inside: How a Small Nation Makes a Big Difference; the Netflix film Beneath the Helmet: From High School to the Home Front; Mekonen: The Journey of an African Jew; and Hummus! The Movie.
