Synopsis: A group of men and women, born in the mid-1930s, talk about being raised on kibbutzim. They were to become the new Zionists—social equals, strong of body and spirit, communal dwellers with little personal ownership and a keen group consciousness. Interspersing recent interviews with rare archival footage and amateur films shot over 40 years, director Tal weaves a complex tapestry of their lives—from early separation from their parents, to pre-teen and young adult camaraderie, to voices of experience reflecting on the experiment of which they were a part.
