Translated from the Hebrew by Anthony Berris

A woman driving home from the airport after dark finds herself in a completely different country.

A soldier who comes home and shuts himself up in his room.

A twelve-year-old girl who only wants to see the ocean.

A woman in a psychologist’s office.

A woman in a security services interview room.

A waiter who’ll be happy to comfort you with a dessert…

And all this leads only to one place. To the checkpoint.
