52 min Documentary Film

The film tells the amazing story of Shira Gurshman, who immigrated as a pioneer woman to Israel in 1923. When she arrived, she joined “The Work Battalion” that founded several Kibbutzim. In 1929, together with other members of the battalion, she returned disillusioned to the USSR. In 1989, after 60 troublesome years, she returned to modern day Israel. The film follows her meetings with old comrades from “The work Battalion” and with their families, and describes how she meets the reality about which she dreamt so many years ago. Screened on Israel Channel 1 in 1992.
