Relates the stories of 18 Jewish men and women who were imprisoned in Ethiopia in the 1970s-80s for smuggling Jews over the border to Sudan on their way to Israel. After the revolution in 1974, officials in the Mengistu regime sought out young Jews in order to draft them into the army and send them to almost certain death on the battlefield; therefore, attempts to smuggle Jews out of the country were stepped up. The men and women whose experiences are retold here either volunteered or were asked to help in the smuggling operation. They were eventually caught, tortured, and imprisoned for aiding Jews to leave the country. They all succeeded in emigrating to Israel after their release.
