Jerusalem; Isabelle who follows her husband to Netanya, leaves her son behind; and
Valerie, the television star, lives in Tel Aviv and misses a Paris that has long gone.
Terror attacks in France, Terror attacks in Israel. Wandering Jews, arriving in Israel
to discover its reality - tougher than they knew, beautiful and struggling, disintegrating.
