synopsis (worldmovies.net):
"Live And Become is a stimulating masterpiece about the dispossession and resettlement of a Christian Ethiopian boy pretending to be Jewish in order to seek refuge in Israel. He must learn to live with prejudice and racism as he struggles to find his identity in this socio-political drama that takes a bold and emotive stance on issues crucial to current times.

In 1984 an operation by the Israeli secret service airlifted thousands of Falashas, Ethiopian Jews displaced by civil war and famine, to seek solace and refuge in Israel. An Ethiopian Christian widow urges the mother of a deceased boy to take her 9-year-old son and instructs him to 'become' Jewish in order to survive. Once in Israel, he encounters isolation and loneliness as he longs for his mother and stumbles in a society that does not fully accept him. The film recounts his journey as a young boy, a teenager and a fully grown adult as he learns to live with the drastic changes of his adopted home. A poignant and engaging film that deals with the difficult question of belonging in a changing world."

a simple yet powerful song, "My Ethiopian Boy".
written by Bezalel Aloni & Ofra Haza.

Kum Ve Lech Al Tiv Kae...
(rise and go, don't cry)

Go on
My Ethiopian boy
Go on
Go fight for your own
One day, you will see
Your mind will be free
I love you

Kum Ve Lech Al Tiv Kae...

Go on
My Ethiopian boy
Go on
You are not alone
One day, you will see
Your mind will be free
I love you

Kum Ve Lech Al Tiv Kae...
