Directed by: Manny Elias
52 Minutes, 2016

In the late seventies, after thousands of years of longing and prayer for Jerusalem, The first Ethiopian Jews started to come to Israel. The story of their arrival received extensive media coverage and quickly became a legend, another glorious battle history of the country. All these operations stories, stories of heroes dropped their journey. Stories of loss and pain of those who have died of thirst, hunger and epidemics in refugee camps in Sudan. Omitted these stories left behind a lifetime, only to realize a dream – to go to Jerusalem. Secret Story painful journey is not talking about the Ethiopian Jewish community. This is the first time they tell, stories many open wounds, and the question arises who never dared to touch her: “Was it worth it?”
