An explanatory film produced by United Film Works LTD for the Service for the Blind in the Ministry of Social Welfare.
Shmuel Lex takes the bus to work at the “Ata” textile factory every morning. There is nothing extraordinary in that except that Shmuel is visually impaired. How can a blind person succeed at work just like anyone else? The film illustrates how Shmuel and other visually impaired workers overcome their blindness and excel in their jobs, using only their sense of touch and sharp minds. But who assists them in finding job opportunities? In Israel, the Ministry of Social Welfare’s Service for the Blind supports visually impaired individuals. The movie showcases the guidance and assistance provided by the ministry to help the blinds discover their place in the Israeli job market. Throughout the film, viewers learn how these individuals overcome their daily challenges and in which surprising workplaces they successfully integrate.
