Storyline

Moshe Rahamim (Tesgau Mahari) carries a great burden. For years he has been explaining and preaching, and yet, the pervasive HIV virus keeps killing in his community. Against the "silencing" policy of the Public Health Authority and the denial of the Ethiopian community, Moshe sets out to expose the disease and stop it from spreading. He goes back to Ethiopia, where he finds thousands of Ethiopians, waiting for years in compounds, where they are exposed to the HIV virus, to fulfill their dream and immigrate to Israel. How could all this have happened? This is not what Moshe had dreamed of, when he crossed the river and left his village. A journey back to his isolated village reveals a story about a curious young man, who marked the way to the exodus of the Ethiopian Jews, and now feels he must save his community.
