A moving and funny one-woman show combining past and present, telling the story of a mother and daughter, between Ethiopia and Israel. Almaz’s recollections of the troubling journey from Ethiopia to Sudan remain with her daughter Or, in her fight against the racism in the community center near her home. The play seeks to bring to life the stories of the women, men and children who perished on their way to the Land of Israel but remain alive in the memories of their loved ones, and exposes the difficulties and complexities the community now faces in Israel. The play deals with current questions of Israeli identity, connection to one’s roots, the inter-generational gap, acceptance of the other and the struggle against racism.
