On the 40th anniversary of the evacuation of Yamit, Osher Assulin and Yoav Gross created a two-part documentary series about settlers in Sinai who came to the land, settled and developed the area, and a decade later were forced to pay the price of peace and evacuate.

Part 1 (Above): Sadat’s visit raises the question of whether Sinai will be fully restored and the settlements dismantled. Prime Minister Menachem Begin’s promise that the settlements will remain raise hopes that this will be the case, but the Camp David Accords reveal a completely different reality.

Part 2: Residents struggle to stop the evacuation of Sinai and fortify themselves at sea to the point of endangering civil war. How was the compensation received by the evacuees perceived among the entire Israeli public? And was the great price they paid for peace justified?
