A film produced by the Moshavim Movement as part of the jubilee celebrations of the Moshavim Movement in 1971, fifty years after the first moshav Nahalal was established in Eretz Israel. The film presents interviews with residents of moshavim from around the country, the veterans recall the early days of founding settlements before the establishment of Israel, and the younger generation depicts the routine life in the moshav and the experience of agricultural training as volunteers who guide new residents in a newly established moshav. The film documents a bicycle trip that took place during the summer of 1971 in which teenagers living in moshavim cycle around the country and hand over the Jubilee Scroll to representatives of newly established settlements of those years in Israel, from the south in the former Yamit region to the Golan Heights.
