An Israeli girl's diaries addressed to Anne Frank evoke a poigant, explosive love affair with her female literature teacher.
Best-selling, internationally recognized Israeli novelist Judith Katzir evokes an artist's coming-of-age during the 1970s as she explores the concealed, erotic attachment between a teenager and her married teacher, Michaela.
When she returns to Israel to attend Michaela's funderal decades after their turbulent love affair, Rivi, now a mother, wife and established author, confronts anew her adolescent self. She recovers - and reflects on - notebooks with entries addressed to Anne Frank. Emotionally charged, these make palpable her angst growing up in rural Israel and the electric attraction she felt for Michaela, a love that ended in trauma and scandal.
