A short children’s film based on the first children’s book by the author Amos Bar.
Hillel loves tractors more than any other child on the kibbutz. A friend on the farm who understands the boy’s spirit gives him a ride on the tractor almost every morning on his way out to the fields. One day, during a trip with his friends, Hillel discovers that the tractor broke down in the middle of the field. He decides to separate from the group of children and sneak up to the tractor, which is standing alone, while the tractor driver goes to fix the oil pump. He sits on the tractor and plays with the levers. Soon enough, panic ensues as his friends, from a distance, hear the noise of the tractor in the field, which is moving on its own. After a dramatic chase, the tractor stops, and Hillel is saved. Hillel, who leaves the impression that he will be a successful farmer when he grows up, is forced to promise for now that he will not get on a tractor for the next 7 years.
