Rock in the Red Zone focuses on real people who aren't right- or left-wing - in fact, the only thing they share is that they were on the receiving end of rocket barrages fired from Palestinians in Gaza over the course of many years, and that for solace, they turned to music. It provides a powerful snapshot of the "real" Israel that shies away from politics but unflinchingly focuses on the effects of politics on the lives of people viewers can't avoid feeling connected to. Sandwiched between Hamas on the one side and the government and fellow Israelis on the other, some Sderot residents can't stand the onslaught of rockets and leave, others have no other place to go.
