Iris Zaki (Women in Sink) rents an apartment and sets up a makeshift film studio in the settlement of Tekoa. She wants to interview the settlers, a group that’s foreign to her and her Tel Aviv friends…but at first none of the Tekoa residents agree to speak with her.
Despite their initial suspicion of this left-winger, settlers from various backgrounds gradually open up and engage in honest, surprising, and sometimes funny conversations, providing a fresh take on Israeli reality from both sides of the Green Line.
