A hundred years ago, women pioneers came from Europe to Palestine, to realize the dream of creating a new woman in a new world, a woman who is as independent as men are. The women pioneers have left diaries and texts which tell their stories. Their writings shed new light on the archival footage of the time. The Women/Pioneers uncovers the course of their passionate battles and painful disappointments, until they were defeated, and gave up their own liberation for the national struggle. A focus through archival material on their battles and disappointments.
