May 1948, eight days before the creation of the state of Israel, a small rusted ship lands a group of Jewish survivors from all over Europe. They are greeted by gunfire from British troops trying to prevent them from coming ashore, and by shooting from the Jewish secret army which has come to protect them. These are the first hours they will spend in Palestine.
