An episode of the childrens series One Zero to Avi, which was produced in the 1970s by the Ministry of Transport in collaboration with the National Council for the Prevention of Accidents. The series is based on the tradition of childrens companies, such as Hasamba or The Famous Five. The group at the center of the current series is working to increase road safety and prevent accidents. The group is led by the bespectacled Avi, who owns a talking parrot. Avi and his friends, all elementary school students, communicate with each other on walkietalkies which is the source for the series name.
In this episode, Eitan notices a boy crossing the road in a dangerous way and calls the group. The group tries to speak to the boy and convince him to be careful, but he claims that this is the shortest way to school and therefore is the best way. The group sends him a letter with a treasure map, the map leads only through crosswalks. The boy follows the map and arrives at the school, where the group meets him and tells him that the treasure is actually his life.
