Labeled outcasts by their Ethiopian neighbors because of their Jewish faith, 13-year-old Wuditu and her family make the arduous trek on foot to Sudan in the hope of being transported to Yerusalem and its promise of a better life.

Instead, they are herded into a squalid refugee camp until the day soldiers round up Wuditu and scores of others, forcing them back to the Ethiopian border.

Throughout her harrowing trek across the scorching sand, and the humiliation, fear, and despair she later faces as a slave, Wuditu's only
hope is to be reunited with her family in Yerusalem.

Based on real events, this story mirrors the experience of thousands
of Ethiopian Jews who fled from hatred, persecution, and brutality to
a new life in their spiritual homeland.
