Heat, sandstorms, remoteness, difficult conditions and a pressing social framework, combined with youth spirit and determination, are the materials from which grew the communities of the Arava in Israel.

The film tells the story of the settlement in the Arava; Ideals versus reality, and shows the personal price those pioneers had to pay and the voices of those who were different and other these strict social frameworks.
