DetailsWhat would you do if your brother turned out to be your enemy?

Told from the perspective of eight-year-old Avram, the compelling story unfolds over seven decades. Bit by bit, the long-held secrets of Avram’s family are uncovered. A story of love and passion, of destiny and redemption—and of the bonds between different cultures that persist despite all conflicts.
