Unflaggingly, Koen Carlier traverse Ukraine. He wants to bring all Jews to Israel, as it will expedite the return of the Messiah. About dogmatic actions and the far-reaching consequences of utopian missions.
Koen Carlier is a steadfast believer. As an unflagging knight of God, he combs the Ukrainian countryside for Jews, whom he admonishes to return to Israel. This way, he hopes to expedite the coming of the Messiah. Koen does not operate alone. He is an outpost of the radical Dutch organisation Christians for Israel that operates globally. The makers were given virtually unlimited access to the field work behind the scenes. With a lyrical touch, they show the mundane consequences of a utopian mission.
