Tuvia Ruebner, winner of the Israel Prize for poetry, tells his life story and describes the road to his poetry. His photographs accompany the beginnings of his creative work in Kibbutz Merhavia, but later on his poetry took over from the camera as he started ‘taking photos’ with words.
From his study Tuvia talks about the process of his writing, and the births of his poems. He talks about his childhood in Slovakia, his arrival in Palestine, his beginnings in the kibbutz, and his work at the library which led to his writing poetry. Tuvia reads his poems throughout the film.
