Female Israeli soldiers have had the right to apply to flight school for over 20 years. But only a few have earned their wings, with the issue of gender still a contested topic for cadets, officers, and society-at-large.
During the first six months of flight school, Touching the Sky follows the young women from their first day at the academy through the ruthless cuts—some will stay the course, but many will have to leave.
