Jonas, hash from a failed marriage to Angela, is desperate to make sense of the ties that have forged him. How can he dream of a future when he can't make sense of his past? He hits the road, tracing the route that his parents —young Ethiopians in search of an identity as an American couple—took thirty years earlier to Nashville, Tennessee. Ina stunning display of imagination, he weaves together a family history that takes him from the war-torn Ethiopia of his parents' youth to a brighter vision of his own life in contemporary America, a story — real or invented—that holds the possibility of reconciliation and redemption.
