Naor, a young filmmaker, is driving with his mother. He tells her about being in Tel Aviv after a recent evacuation.
A novel of suspense, a profound tale about our choices under pressure, about love, for each other and for a place, about death, and about finding a way to peace. Everyone has fled Tel Aviv, except for Naor and Yaël, his artist girlfriend, and Saba, his writer grandfather. The occasional missile explodes nearby. But Saba refuses to leave the place he loves. And Yaël has her own secret aspirations. In defiance of the war, they scavenge an existence and explore the mysteries of their beloved city--until the unthinkable happens.
