It recalls the story Shabbatai Tzvi, a false prophet who visited in the 1600s and escaped a synagogue scandal with committed followers; and the story of Babatha, a wealthy owner of date farms who existed in biblical times and left behind, in a cave, the largest archive of letters ever found, Lessons of love and loss abound in contemporary time as well as in the past. It is a story of family loyalty, survival and endurance.
