Set in a Persian immigrant moshav in the Negev during the early 1980’s, three generations of the stubborn Morgian family struggle to manage a ramshackle turkey farm. The film revolves around the tensions between the new immigrants with traditions from the old country and the sabras seeking a fresh path.

Best Movie, Israeli Film Academy and Israel’s selection for the Oscars!
