Description: A tale of unselfishness and love, based on a story from the Talmud. When Chayim dies, he leaves his rich farm to his two sons, making them promise to share the land and always take care of each other. All goes well until there is a terrible drought and no crops can grow. Josef worries about his brother, who has a family to feed, Yankel worries about his brother, who has no one to help him. But the brothers' love causes a miracle on the parched earth.
