In a little Jerusalem apartment, surrounded by dolls and cats, Miriam Yalan Shtekelis wrote children songs that captured the hearts of generations of Israelis - the doll named Zehava, the soap who cried a lot, Michael and others. The director, photographer, editor, designer and writer - Reuven Brodeski - created a russian legend on Shtekelis, using miniatures that were created especially for this film and interviews with people who knew her, telling the story of the first lady of Israel’s writing for children - Miriam Yalan Shtekelis. The film is part of the documentary project: THE HEBREWS, documenting Hebrew culture with the best of Israeli directors, each focusing of the life and work of a major Hebrew literary poet of writer.
