Disabled in the Army

Many Israelis have paid a high price for fulfilling their civil duty: they have become disabled while completing their military service.

We will hear what kind of feelings the disability has stirred up in 31-year old Dror and 43-year old Roi. We will hear about their lives after their injury. We will also pay a visit to a special centre in Tel Aviv that has been built for those disabled in the military service. One of the things we will see there is a wheelchair basketball game.
