"Wanted: The Joseph Esses Story" describes, through one-on-one interviews and personal photos, one man's escape from persecution and his journey towards freedom. This film is a dramatic re-telling of a Jewish man's daring escape from Aleppo, Syria in 1950. Anti-semitism was on the rise, due to the establishment of the State of Israel, and high tensions, riots and physical violence that caused Mr. Esses and his family to leave the country they had called home for decades.
