Fania, her baby daughter, emotionally scarred brother and her uncle are all that is left of her family after the Russian pogroms. Together they join the first wave of European Jews seeking new lives in late 19th Century Palestine. Soon she meets Yechiel, a recent widower with two young children who is a farmer from the northern Galilee. As a means of survival, Fania and Yechiel agree to a marriage of convenience. Together they face the hard pioneer life in Yechiel’s tiny village in the north near Safed. Necessity brought them together, their intertwining lives begins to bind them. Based on the bestselling novel by Shulamit Lapid, this romantic saga interweaves a beautiful love story with the backdrop of the Jewish dream to rebuild the land of Zion. This story about the hardships of the land, the challenge of building a life and the blossoming of love will captivate your heart. Colorado Premiere
