Event Originally produced by Menemsha Films in 2019.
Summary Mina is 16 years old. The Ethiopian Civil War has been underway her entire life. She lives with her brother and grandmother in a humble house with newsprint for wallpaper. Her family is Jewish and is planning to flee Ethiopia for Israel, where Mina's mother awaits their reunion. But this plan leaves out the person Mina loves most: Eli, her Christian boyfriend, who lives in the woods so as to evade being drafted into Mengistu Haile Mariam's army. Mina hatches a scheme to save Eli, but everyone and everything seems set against her. Winner of the Eurimages Audentia Award at the **Toronto International Film Festival**. Nominated for five **Awards of the Israeli Film Academy** including Best Film.
