Shoshana and Zoya met at their Youth Aliya boarding school. Today, twenty years later, they meet again to create a joint show that weaves together the stories of their lives. Shoshana's family made Aliya from Ethiopia and Zoya made Aliya from the Soviet Union. On stage they move among languages, accents and identities. They lend one another their language and style of expression. They ask questions about identity and about the ability to see the other beyond and through language and mother tongue.

This is a story of loss and fragmentation of an immigrant generation, the story of belonging to a homeland. It is a story about the meeting of two distant cultures and their intertwining into one human story.
