1984. Thousands of Africans from 26 different countries are struck by famine and flee to the camps in Sudan. Israel and the United States take the initiative of a vast action (The Moses Operation), which will bring thousands of Ethiopian Jews (Falashas)to Israel. A Christian Ethiopian mother persuades her son to declare himself Jewish, to save him from starvation and death. The child arrives to the holy land. Considered an orphan, the boy is adopted by a French Sephardi family who lives in Tel-Aviv. He grows up with the fear that his double secret and lie will be exposed : he is neither a Jew nor an orphan, only a black boy.
