Zohar and Daffi are best friends; serving in an administration office at an artillery base in the south of Israel. They share a bunk bed and since both of them don't get along with others, they practically spend all their time together, sharing their secrets. As storm clouds gather over the south, Daffi does all she can to be transferred away from the hated remote base. Zohar, on the other hand, doesn't seem to care so much about where she's stationed. Terrified by the possibility of being left alone in the desolated base without her best friend — Zohar will try to prevent Daffi from leaving. One person who wouldn't mind so much about this separation is Rama, their highly motivated officer.
Through the story of these three young women soldiers, their real and surreal journey inside the labyrinth of bureaucracy, and adolescent turbulence, Zero Motivation provides a mixed comic-tragic glimpse into the Israeli militaristic society.
