A six-episode miniseries. The affluent Tzipis family arrives in Jerusalem in 1885, following the father of the family’s vision of love for Zion. The daughters of the family are not happy with the move to Jerusalem and all the desire of Froma, the 19-year-old eldest, is to run away back to Odessa to the arms of her revolutionary lover. But then she meets Eliezer Ben Yehuda and starts working at his newspaper “THaTzvi”, where she is exposed to stories about brutal lynchings against young Jewish girls out of a desire to “educate” them, stories that the community will do anything to keep from being published in the newspaper. Froma becomes an investigative journalist in Ben Yehuda’s HaTzvi newspaper and without realizing it she falls in love with the Hebrew language. This is the story of the Jewish community in Jerusalem, extreme and brutal at times, in a period of romance, ideology, the development of the press and self-realization versus family ties and tradition.
