Making a war is a storyteller’s job. A good story is crucial to legitimise use of military force. That’s why militaries need promotion and Israel is a model country in promoting its military ventures. But before pitching our story to the world, we need to pitch it to our children. ‘Innocence’ tells the story of children who resisted to be enlisted but capitulated. Their stories were never told as they died during service. Through a narration based on their haunting diaries, the film depicts their inner turmoil.
