Synopsis

Recent Ethiopian history has been one unlike any previous era in Ethiopian history, mainly because of the out flux of Ethiopians immigrating to other countries looking for a change in life. Mahamer (Solomon Bogale) and Jemal (Muluken Teshome) are two who are willing to endure any travail to reach America and what they deem as a promise of a better life, but is it? Along the way Jemal meets Winta, who is from neighboring Eritrea and on a similar journey as Mahamer. Mahamer and Winta fall in love with each other as the group of Ethiopians and Eritreans travel an arduous and illegal path from East Africa through Libya, Italy, Mexico and finally to America, but their love for each other is tested thoroughly as the group meets up with violence, sickness and, ultimately, tragedy.
