The Passengers tells the story of the final community of Ethiopian Jews and its struggle to immigrate to Israel. While on a fateful trip to America as part of a grassroots advocacy campaign, a pair of Ethiopian best friends confront culture shock, homesickness and the pressures of representing their abandoned community. With intimate access and detailed historical context, their own journey reveals the thorny politics surrounding Ethiopian and American Jewry, and the Zionist ideal.
