Juda Harkavi, a historian of ancient Middle Eastern civilizations, discovers that the Canaanite letters he wrote down have gone missing. He decides to look for them in Jerusalem. On his journey he struggles with other things he has lost, in particular the disappearance of his Circassian wife Osnat. Juda's journey in Jerusalem, which takes place on the ten days leading to the Yom Kippur War, crosses time and civilizations, and is a breathtaking combination of narratives and identities.

Aharon Megged published more than thirty books - novels, collections of stories and essays as well as theatre plays. In 2003 he awarded the Israel Prize for literature.
