Live and Become is a gripping story of deception and survival. A beautifully crafted coming of age tale about the fate of a young refugee, told with warmth and humour. The story begins in 1984, when civil war and famine drove hundreds of thousands of Ethiopians into refugee camps in Sudan. Among them were the Falashas, Ethiopian Jews who claim direct lineage back to King Solomon's days. Amid the chaos, as the operation to take 10,000 Falashas to Israel begins, a starving Christian woman entrusts her nine-year old son to a bereaved Falasha mother. Arriving in Tel Aviv, the boy is declared an orphan and adopted by a local French family.
He begins a new life constantly fearing the discovery of a double lie, that he was neither Jewish or orphaned.
