    Gripping, heartfelt, smart, and entertaining, this documentary follows a group of Israeli musicians, that go by the name of The Idan Raichel Project, who set out on a journey to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia for a performance they will never forget.

    With two of the Project’s lead singers, Cabra Casay and Avi Vograss Vesa, having emigrated from Ethiopia to Israel when they were children, returning there cannot be considered just another performance. Cabra faces the realization she cannot easily connect with where she came from, but can only connect with where she grew up. She points out that although she may not look like an outsider on Ethiopian grounds, she feels like one.

    For Avi, on the other hand, the return to Ethiopia is a return to his family, heritage, and a place he does consider home. Questions of multiculturalism, identity, and immigration are all at the beating heart of this film. And although the distinct answers may never be found, the journey to find them is a wonderful one.
