In the imaginary and isolated village of Entshongweni, young James is chosen to undertake a mission - a pilgrimage to holy Jerusalem.
But Israel is no longer the Holy Land that James and his people imagined. At the airport, James is arrested, jailed and awaiting deportation on suspicion of trying to infiltrate the country in order to work illegally.
While in jail and praying to God to let him complete his mission, a mysterious stranger posts bail for him. But James' freedom comes at an ominous price. The manpower agent who rescues illegal migrant workers does so in exchange for employing them in hard labor jobs.
From then on, James' journey to Jerusalem turns into an unpredictable one and he will have to think fast on his feet if he is to get through this.
