While his friends are dreaming of a modern and better life in Europe, Abebe travels through ancient Ethiopia, trying to find crucial answers and a way towards a meaningful life. In an observational style, we follow the young Abebe in his personal quest. The future is uncertain, his journey erratic. The centuries-old scenery of impressive landscapes, monasteries and rock-hewn churches is undisturbed. The reality of daily life and Abebe’s magical dreams merge into each other. Filmmaker Nico Bunnik shot and developed this film over a period of 5 years together with Abebe and his friends. Close to the bone, from Abebe's perspective we follow him in his thoughts and quest. comments: "A diamond in the rough", "not pre-cooked and free from moralizing intentions", "deeply touched", "it takes you into 'being in time' ", "unscripted, no music... this purity is special", Abebe himself: "It is a good story, a real story!", "very special film, it is still happening always so little that we hear about life in Africa, this time Ethiopia, FROM AFRICANS THEMSELVES."....
