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.
