Jeremy, a young Ethiopian rap artist, attempts to change the low self-image of the Ethiopian community in Israel. Through music he connects lost Ethiopian youth to their identity and to their parents. Likewise, he tries to stimulate the Kesses, the Ethiopian Rabbis, to fight for their lost spiritual status.

Children of the Bible is the third film in the series THE REVIVERS, exploring the diversity of Israeli society and culture through the eyes of young Isralis attempting to revive and preserve their cultural heritage. Other films in the series are: Ladino - 500 Years Young, and Georgia My Love.
