Mazal, a Jewish child-bride from Yemen, preserves her religion, culture, family and her unique art, surviving the harsh, violent conditions of Jerusalem and the Holy Land in the late 19th through the mid-20th centuries. She becomes the mother of two, a young widow, and the family's breadwinner through her skills as a jeweler in gold and silver. In time, a woman of property and an ardent patriot, she prevails through the unfolding bloody decades while living in the Old City of Jerusalem. She heads a family of extraordinary, unforgettable characters and grows old in strength and determination, remaining true to her traditions and ideals.. This stirring saga spans four generations of a family of Yemenite goldsmiths at the vortex of history in the Land of Israel. Their tragedies and triumphs, their sorrows and joys, and, most of all, the heroine's profound love for the Holy City, create a vivid and lasting image of an ancient land rising from two millennia of slumber to an era of splendor. For the first time in a feature motion picture, the fabulous story of Israel's rebirth is graphically portrayed through the extraordinary saga of a Yemenite family's struggles to survive and thrive in Jerusalem from the late 19th Century through the Israeli War of Independence..
