Mussa

Mussa, a 12 years old African refugee, lives in a tiny apartment in the slums of Tel Aviv but studies with wealthy kids. He connects with his teachers and friends through gestures and facial expressions, he refuses to speak, and no one knows why. His teacher, Anna loves him and provides for all his needs, but has never heard his voice. Mussa's life will change forever when his mother is told she has to leave the country in one week, leaving him devastated, and compelled to leave his father behind. Eight months later, we follow him to Ethiopia: what happened to him? Will he speak there?
