Sixteen-year-old Mina lives a surreal existence, surrounded by both the natural  wonder of her pastoral Addis Ababa neighbourhood and the enveloping  atmosphere of panic and suffering of ordinary people torn asunder by the Ethiopian  Civil War. Hiding nearby in a fig tree, her Christian boyfriend, Eli, tries to avoid  abduction by the merciless military junta as young men are scooped off the street  and conscripted into the army against their will.

With her young romance threatened and time running out, Mina hatches a  scheme to save Eli as her family plans their escape to Israel where the children’s  mother awaits. Drawing on her own wartime memories, this harrowing drama is confidently directed with grit and compassion by first-time Ethiopian-Israeli filmmaker Aäläm-Wärqe Davidian.
