"Meseganio Tadela, 74, immigrated to Israel from Ethiopia 28 years ago with his family. He has chosen to zealously retain his culture, talks very little, and hardly speaks Hebrew. After losing his wife, Meseganio sets out on a journey that leads him through his children's homes. He comes to realize that he belongs to a rapidly disappearing class that believes in retaining Ethiopian culture. As this harsh reality begins to hit him, he struggles to survive according to his own rules."--Amazon.com.

He quickly discovers that some of his grown children and their spouses have hidden secrets that are deeply upsetting; and his grand-children have contemporary ways and attitudes that insult his traditional values. The movie has English subtitles.
Frightening or Intense Scenes: The movie opens with a man struggling with a goat that, in hindsight, we realize is to be slaughtered and butchered to serve at the funeral of the wife of the main character. The roughness of handling of the goat may upset some viewers. Vegans are advised to not watch this movie.
