In 1905, the Zionist Congress sent a delegation to Eastern Africa to examine the possibility of implementing an initiative that Herzl himself put forth – to establish a Jewish state in Africa. Among the members of this delegation was the Israeli engineer Nahum Wilbush who documented the journey in his diary, which he wrote in Hebrew. With the exquisite views of Eastern Africa as the background, this film embarks on a journey tracing entries from the Wilbush diary. And following the original route of the delegation, the film meets Jews and Israelis who have visited this area and continue to inhabit it to this day.
