A short documentary produced as a part of the Jewish Agency and Israeli Government’s news magazine for new immigrants.
At dawn, the fishermen of Jaffa return from the sea with their catch. In the following hours, they will haggle with wholesalers over the fish price, dine in Benno’s tavern, and head home for a short rest before another night of fishing. This short film romantically portrays the life of Jaffa’s fishermen – a group of people “whose only common denominator is the love for the sea.”
