During the early part of the Sudanese Civil War, a young boy escapes and pays a heavy emotional price. Schlomo, an Ethiopian Christian, and his mother face religious persecution in Sudan. She places her son with an Ethiopian Jewish woman waiting for an airlift to Israel as part of Operation Moses. In his new home, Schlomo must hide his religion and wrestle with the idea that he abandoned his mother.
