Nelson’s Last Stand


A rock star-style rebel and bohemian. Two nations battling for supremacy. Corrupt politicians, movie stars, music, alcohol, and more bikinis than Beach Blanket Bingo. Welcome to the story of Rafi Nelson, a bearded, one-eyed, larger-than-life celebrity, and his Rafi Nelson Holiday Village. One square mile of land in one of the most contested areas in the world becomes a symbol of the entire Middle East struggle, and in one man’s thirst for fame and adoration.
The story of the bohemian holiday village established by Rafi Nelson on the Sinai border, caught in a border conflict between Israel and Egypt. Nelson, a colorful figure, goes to defend his land. An absurd look at the conflict in the Middle East through one square kilometer of passions
