Synopsis

In the late 1970s, after thousands of years of longing and prayer for Jerusalem, the first Ethiopian Jews began to arrive in Israel. After 40 years, they open their closed hearts and tell of the loss and pain, of those who died of thirst, hunger and epidemics, in the refugee camps in Sudan. For those who left behind a whole life, just to fulfill a dream - to get to Jerusalem.
