Though filmed after the British occupation troops left Palestine, Dream No More is set just before the troops' departure. The film follows the trials and tribulations of Jewish refugee Shlomo Vollmus, played by Avraham Doryon. Finally able to legally emigrate to the Holy Land, Shlomo joins a Jewish settlement and sets about to make himself a vital part of his new community. With the exception of Doryon, the cast is comprised of nonprofessionals, none of whom speak on-camera. For the benefit of English-speaking audiences, narration is provided by radio actors Mason Adams (later "Charlie Hume" on TV's Lou Grant) and Ann Shepherd.
