A group of Jewish-Israeli activists break one of the country's most sacred taboos: they cross into the occupied territories to join the nonviolent Palestinian resistance to the occupation. They are the most radical leftist group in Israel. "Enraged" follows four activists as they bring food into Palestinian villages under curfew, tear down parts of the separation barrier, and serve as human shields trying to protect Palestinian demonstrators from Israeli soldiers.
The heroes of "Enraged" pay a heavy price for their actions. At home in Israel, they are ostracized by their own society; in Palestine, they endure a similar fate to that of the Palestinians, they are beaten, sprayed with tear gas, and shot at with rubber-coated bullets. One such bullet hits one of the film's main characters in the head, permanently impairing his eyesight. "Enraged" exposes a face of the Israeli left that is rarely seen or talked about.
