Film Synopsis

Is life the result of meaningless, chaotic chance, or is chance itself a sophisticated, well-calculated plan? Told through three acts, Foxtrot is the story of a father and son dealing with loss, grief, and the futility of war. The son, a soldier, is serving at a secluded army checkpoint, a world away from his family where only a passing camel cures the boredom. The father, struggling with his own past, receives some devastating news about his son, and fate intervenes. Revolving around a family that falls apart, Foxtrot is about love challenged by pain, about coming to terms with life and about the gap between the things in our control and those that are not.
