Joseph travels to Northern Ethiopia to uncover its ancient history and discover its spiritual present thorough cultural adventures, myths and legends. His path takes him from the monasteries of Lake Tana, the largest lake in Ethiopia, to the castles of King Fasiladas in Gondar, to the stelaes of Axum and the rock-hewn churches of Lalibela. There are World Heritage sites and surprises galore as Joseph traces the lineage of Ethiopia's kings back to the days of Solomon and the Queen of Sheba. In the ancient town of Axum he stands at the threshold of the chapel where Ethiopians believe the Ark of Covenant is housed. In Lalibela he prays with a pilgrim before visiting a local school that is being supported by children in the United States.
