This is a film about growth and self discovery. It follows Ethiopian and Russian Israelis who meet at a leadership training program. Their year of learning culminates in a journey to Ethiopia where the Ethiopian born participants return to their native villages. Though all the participants would consider themselves on the fringe of Israeli society, in the highlands of the Ethiopian landscape they discover the universality of their experiences and their shared commitment to their new home. How will this journey transform them?

Admission: $7 for Adults
