When the Israeli government forms a plan to urbanize Bedouin villages in the Negev, the lives of 120,000 citizens are on the verge of radical change. Othman, a local young man, is appointed to convince the people of Bir Hadaj to embrace modernization. Soon, he realizes that the true potential for change lies with the village women. Together with his younger sister Aisha, advocating for literacy and integration, the two manage to spark a movement. While the men continue fighting with each other, and with the government, Othman and Aisha start shaping a positive alternative.
