Eight Twenty Eight is a personal poetic look at one of the most fascinating social experiments in human history - the Kibbutz. This is the story of the filmmaker`s re-encounter with the kibbutz where he grew up, after a long absence. By Kibbutz regulations, the filmmaker who has reached the age of 28 must make up his mind within one year whether he remains as a member or leaves. The filmmaker sets out with his camera to examine his kibbutz and himself, in order to make the most important decision of his life.
Eight Twenty Eight is a journey to a home one cannot leave, but to which one can never really return.
