Can we direct our fate, and if so, to what extent? At what price?

Foxtrot tells the tragic story of father and son. While the father is in his apartment in Tel Aviv, his son, a soldier, is serving far away in a muddy isolated outpost.
In the first part of the film, the parents are notified that their son was killed in action. A few hours later, the military authorities notify them again, this time that they made a terrible mistake and their son is alive.
In the other half of the film our point of view changes. We focus on the son, stuck in the muddy outpost and busy with military activity, routine and nightmarish. A series of odd events, coupled with group paranoia, reduces the son to acts that lead to his death.
Later we learn of the father's sins. The seemingly chaotic randomness becomes a sophisticated, well-arranged plan of fate getting even.
