Rescue Bus 300

Rescue Bus 300

A suspenseful real-life thriller, Rescue Bus 300 tells the tangled true story of a 1984 Israeli bus hijacking. Four young terrorists—dangerously armed but frightened amateurs who didn’t know what they were doing and had no real plan—hijacked an Israeli bus, took the passengers hostage, and drove toward Gaza. What followed was a night of negotiations, a daring rescue mission by an elite Israeli commando unit, and then an unexpected scandal that rocked Israeli society. Mixing interviews with the actual participants and superbly acted dramatic recreations, the film deftly explores the complex personalities and difficult decisions behind this notorious event.
