A Film by Yakie Ayalon
Esther, Emmanuel and Michal were born in Israel to migrant parents from Nigeria.
In a moment of despair, they were torn away from their Israeli existence to a life of poverty and survival in Nigeria, unable to continue their studies, living for a time on the streets. When Esther celebrated her eighteenth birthday she managed to return to Israel on her own. Israel is not the same home she remembered, but despite everything she is determined to bring her family back to Israel and reunite again. Now it’s up to her to save the family.
