A look at ancient Caesarea and nearby Kibbutz Sdot Yam. The story of Caesarea is conveyed from a perspective that centers on Jewish connections: here Jewish rebels were imprisoned and tortured. Here a special Jewish community existed in antiquity. The film opens with footage of the Muslim Bosnian village that existed on the site untill 1948. It presents the state of the excavations at the beginning of the 1960s. At the time, many of the remains currently visible to visitors were still underground, while some sculptures that have since been removed to museums remained on site. The wonderful “birds floor” mosaic, located far from the current site of the national park, was already exposed.
