a screenplay by Joe Bardin
Danny, 25, American, goes to Israel (where he had lived as a child) to escape the trauma of a car accident, which killed his girlfriend. When the Gulf War breaks out, he’s invited to stay with a friend, whose divorced mother, Maya, 50, he becomes romantically involved with. The war ends, but Maya and Danny’s secret affair doesn’t. With her hard-earned independence threatened by this love, Maya breaks it off, only to discover she’s empty without him. When Maya wants them to come out, it’s Danny’s turn to run. Each must face their intimidations, and surrender to the depth of their love, in order to find happiness and each other.
