Synopsis

This is the moving true story of three orphans who after World War 2, returned home to discover everything was lost. After a two-year journey across shattered Europe, they reached the shores of southern France. On the ship President Warfield – later known as the Exodus – they began an unforgettable journey to their new life.



Attacked by the British, the Exodus arrived in Haifa, only to be turned away – back to the horror they escaped: the camps in Germany. Outraged, the passengers refused to disembark, staging a hunger strike in protest.



Their spirit, determination, endless faith and bravery established the state of Israel.
