Kibbutz Eshbal in the Galilee, established in 1998 as an educational center, runs a boarding school for adolescents who have been expelled from other educational institutions. At Eshbal, Baruch, Ora, Moshe and Yael, first-generation immigrants from Ethiopia, are counseled by Yoav and Vickie, kibbutz members. The film portrays the first class at Eshbal’s boarding school while documenting life on a secluded hill in the Galilee, of committed kibbutz youngsters and alienated youths, each striving, in their own way, for a place within Israeli society.
