You’d recognise that man anywhere. He’s older now and his appearance has subtly changed, but it’s definitely him. Which makes no sense at all, since he’s been dead for over two years. You know this for a fact.

When they were little girls, Cibi, Magda and Livia make a promise to their father – that they will stay together, no matter what. Two of the sisters live in Israel today and have chosen Heather Morris to reimagine their story.
Nick and Anna work the same summer job at their local cinema. Anna is mysterious, beautiful, and from a very different world to Nick. She’s grown up preparing for the end of days, in a tightly-controlled existence where Christmas, getting drunk and sex before marriage are all off-limits.
So when Nick comes into her life, Anna falls passionately in love. Their shared world burns with poetry and music, cigarettes and conversation - hints of the people they hope to become. But Anna, on the cusp of adulthood, is afraid to give up everything she’s ever believed in, and everyone she’s ever loved. She walks away, and Nick doesn’t stop her.
