Based on the classic novel by Shulamit Lapid, Fania (Tamar Alkan), having escaped the pogroms of Russia seeks a new life in late 18th century Palestine. She meets Yechiel (Zion Ashkenazi), a widower with two young children. Agreeing to marriage as a means of survival, Fania follows the farmer to a hard pioneer life in his tiny village near Safed in this dramatic love story and historical narrative of the Jewish dream of returning and rebuilding the land of Zion.
