Live and Become
by Radu Mihaileanu
1984: Thousands of Africans from 25 countries die of starvation or end up in camps, in Sudan. On a decision from Israel and the United States, an operation is carried out which consists in bringing thousands of Jews from Ethiopia to Israel. A Christian mother encourages his child to claim he is Jewish so as to escape from death and starvation. The child, registered as an orphan, is adopted in Tel-Aviv and grows up with the fear that his lie should be discovered. Neither a Jew, nor an orphan, only black.
