A documentary film produced by the Israeli Film Service and the Jewish Agency documenting life in Moshav Ahuzam in the Lakhish region through the story of the couple Masoud and Yamna Peretz who immigrated to Israel from Morocco in 1951 and were integrated in Ahuzam with their children. Through the integration experiences of the Peretz family, we are exposed to the changes and development in the Lakhish region, where the Jewish Agency formulates a regional settlement plan in advance to each Moshav, which includes allocating water quotas, size of cultivated area allocated to each farm, type of crops to be planted, and more. The film crew accompanies the family members in their everyday life in the moshav and the camera watches quietly and without intervention as Masoud plows the field and herds a flock of sheep, and Yamna works in the vegetable garden and fields, cooks for her family and weaves wool. Masoud and Yamna’s thoughts are conveyed in a narration delivered by Haim Yavin.
