A short film by Dan Wolman produced by the Israeli Film Service, depicting the city Jerusalem as vibrant, diverse, and filled with history. A tour begins in the Old City and its ancient landscapes, and continues to the rejuvenating parts of the city, in Jaffa Street and Zion Square. The city streets are filled with Jews, Christians, Muslims, religious and secular people, old men playing backgammon, and a young woman in Bukharan traditional clothing. In the background stand monuments such as the Sergei Courtyard and the Holy Trinity Church, the Italian Hospital, and Gelat House in Talbiya. The city streets are seen on a Saturday, when the roads empty and businesses close.
