A young boy receives an atlas from his mother. Together they embark on imaginary journeys, wandering through hills and valleys; along rivers and coastlines; and across sandy desert landscapes. As they dream of adventurous expeditions, they delve into the histories and cultures of faraway, foreign lands. A story of epic proportions, spanning half a century, embracing three generations, crisscrossing five continents, and bearing witness to two world wars. It reflects moments of high hopes and deep despair. It narrates tales of human destinies that unfold against a backdrop of revolutions and the Holocaust. The story ends on the eve of the foundation of the State of Israel, but often harks back to previous centuries or fastforwards to our times.
