When Saul was a little boy, he used to listen to stories about a place called Eretz Yisrael – the land of Israel. Everything he heard inspired him and he longed to know what it would be like to live there. He dreamed about being barefoot in the sand; about digging deep into the soil to plant young saplings that, with time and patience, would grow into strong trees full of apples and figs.

When he was old enough, determined to make his dream come true, he devised a plan to travel there. But what happens when your dreams come true? Are they as you had imagined them?

Follow Saul in this heart-warming tale about growing up and making your dreams come true. Discover the people he meets along the way and the importance of accepting everyone, no matter where they come from. Great things await us all if we are patient enough to discover them and if we are brave enough to pursue or dreams.
