In the imaginary village of Entshongweni, very far from western civilization, the young James is chosen to undertake a mission - a pilgrimage to Holy Jerusalem. But Israël is no longer the Holy Land that James and his people imagines. At the airport, James is suspected of trying to infiltrate the country in order to work illegally. He is jailed and destined to deportation. Inside the dark cell, as James prays God to allow him to complete his mission, a miracle occurs. A mysterious stranger posts bail for him. But it soon becomes clear that James’freedom has come at a price - his savior is a manpower agent, who rescues illegal migrant workers in exchange for employing them in hard labor jobs. From then on, James’ Journey to Jerusalem turns into an unpredicable journey through the cruel heart of our economic system. With good teachers, a bit of luck, and some lateral thinking, James learns the tricks of the game and plays it towards an inevitable end."
