SARAH (O.S.) (CONT’D)

This book is dedicated to my

inspiration. My mother, Rachel

Singer.

People around Rachel begin to applaud, the sound almost

startling her. Automatically she gives the same bob of the

head, acknowledging the applause.

Sarah, cheeks burning with a mixture of embarrassment and

emotion, hasn’t finished yet. She locks eyes with her

mother.

SARAH (CONT'D)

Mother, I’m so very proud to be

your daughter.

More applause. Rachel manages to smile.

6 INT. FUNCTION ROOM. HOTEL NEAR TEL AVIV - LATER 6

The room is now alive with the excited chatter of the

guests.

Rachel moves against the tide of the audience with a fixed

social smile, murmuring thanks to well-wishers, trying to

get out, trying not to look like she’s trying to get out...

7 EXT. TEL AVIV. HOTEL NEAR TEL AVIV. PATIO - CONTINUOUS 7

She emerges onto the empty patio, slides the glass door

shut behind her, muffling the chatter from the room beyond.

She lights a cigarette, inhales greedily, trying to calm

down. She stares at the sun blazing over the Mediterranean

ahead of her. Her glasses darken against the reflected

glare.

As if sensing something she turns to see a SMALL BOY - her

GRANDSON - watching her from behind the glass of the patio

door, something UNNERVING in his direct gaze.
