Synoposis: The Passengers tells the story of two men caught between two worlds … the land of their birth and the land of their faith. They are Ethiopian Jews, members of a community of 9,000 who speak Hebrew, keep kosher and have Israeli relatives, yet Israel continues to deny their appeals for aliyah — the birthright of Jews around the world to immigrate to the Jewish homeland. These two young men, Demoz and Gezi, embark on a daring journey in their desperate search for a path to their true home ... the one they have never seen.
