When a man unknowingly summons the past to haunt him in the form of a mysterious stranger, he and those around him must confront the truths they conceal from each other and the lies they tell themselves. Drawing on Jewish mysticism and folklore, Besharet throws truth, love, faith, even gender and sexuality into crisis as a community is forced to grapple with horrific historical and personal events and face the schism between who they feel they should be and who they have become.
"...absolutely astonishing. Miraculous. Completely original and captivating." -Craig Lucas (author of Light in the Piazza, Reckless, Prelude To A Kiss)
