Arriving in Israel on a pilgrimage to Jerusalem, wide-eyed Nigerian James (Shibe) expects to find a land of milk and honey, populated by God's chosen people. Instead he encounters a land of malls and high-rise hovels, populated by gang-masters who promptly cast him into virtual slavery in the illegal labour market.

His innocence and ideals are soon muddied by the grubby experience of his ascent to black-market player, in an engaging and well-acted morality play. Israeli director Alexandrowicz deftly lands his blows: idolatry in organised religion, the racism and exploitation in Israeli society and the corrupting power of that bloody money stuff all take a beating. But the muddled mix of documentary rawness and fable-like naivete prevents it from fulfilling its parable pretensions.
