Against the background of the mass immigration to Israel from the Soviet Union, this film focuses on the assimilation of Georgian olim in Israel. The film depicts a rather successful integration of the immigrants in the economy, alongside difficulties acclimatizing to the new society. The film also reviews the culture, history, and language of the immigrants’ motherland.
