Two German-Jewish children flee Nazi Germany in the early 1940s and try to escape to Palestine via Bulgaria. When their uncle dies during the journey, they are taken in by a troupe of travelling performers.
Two kids, German Jews accompanied by an old uncle are trying to escape from the raging fascists towards the land of their ancestors - Palestine. The have to reach Istanbul by train and then to proceed on board a ship. The sudden death of the uncle is the reason why the brother and sister instead in Istanbul find themselves at Sofia railway station. Destiny has prepared the two children to meet a itinerant troupe. Shabby hotel rooms, jalopy buses, 'tremendous artistic success' and constant shortage of money mark their days as in colorful merry-go-round. Sofia, Plovdiv, Shumen and at last Varna, the town they were dreaming for. The poor members of the troupe as one put pawn the very last they have in order to pay the access of two children abroad. They will suffer waving them 'good bye' but they are happy as well for the good deed achieved - to help your fellowmen in danger. Bulgaria managed to rescue all its Jewish origin - over 50,000 people - during WWII.Written by

I Just saw 2 Bulgarian Movies and a really impress about it. Jorney to Jerusalem is my favorite at this time, the have a good drama flow, i didn't find big error, i'll like more knowledge places from the cities like the Zift Movie where you can see the Party House the Public Bathrooms & extinct mausoleum. The use of Bulgarian and Germany language was good, i like when the director use the original languages. the music is very good, but i would liked more background music some part are to quiet, the sound have a very good quality, i love the sound who was sing it by Zara in the first hotel in Sofia when the German consult meet her.
I hope see more Bulgarian movie in a short term.
