This film was shot in 1949 and produced by residents of the Ben Shemen youth village. The children seen playing in the film are in fact locals. At the heart of the story is new kid, Benjamin, who’s arrived at the village from the concentration camps in Europe. The film follows the course of his rehabilitation and recovery process whilst also portraying the children’s lives in the village: the various tasks and jobs they undertake, activities at the many facilities, and festive ceremonies held on Shavuot and Hanukkah. The film offers viewers a glimpse of the children’s day-to-day life at the youth village, and also captures both the local routine and rehabilitation journey of refugee children post WWII.
