Storyline

In 1982, Itzik Rosenberg and other young pioneers established the settlement of Ein Tamar in the southern Dead Sea region. They dreamed of a community life and thriving agriculture that would fulfill the Zionist dream.

Over the years, the fields of Ein Tamar began to empty of Zionist settlers and fill up with Thai workers who dreamed of leaving behind lives of poverty and mere survival, progressing toward a better future for themselves and their families.

The mutual dependence that developed between Itzik and his Thai workers creates surprising human bonds but also tensions and disappointments.

With the future of the moshav hanging in the balance, Ning, Pisha, and Tom – Itzik’s workers who left behind home, family, language, venturing into the unknown – are the ones breathing some life into the agricultural settlement.
