What if

The tale of a friend rediscovered at the last minute

A phone call from the hospice: Yigal, a childhood friend that Lizzie Doron hasn’t seen for forty years, asks her to be the last person to visit him. But why her of all people? Yigal’s experiences in the Israeli army transformed him into an activist against his homeland’s policies. As the daughter of a Holocaust survivor, Lizzie thought he was a traitor and rejected him. Now she wonders who betrayed whom allthose years ago. In the early hours of the morning, Lizzie sets off, in the hope ofseeing her childhood friend one last time.

• A personal story: eye-opening, psychological, emotional, authentic
• Lizzie Doron was honored in 2018 and 2019 for her work to promote a policy of change in the Near East
