Atlit

Synopsis

In the fall of 1995, three 30-something French sisters, Darel, Cali, and Asia, gather in Atlit, a small Israeli town on the Mediterranean coast to clear out their departed parents’ beloved country house so it can be sold. With Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin closing in on a negotiated peace accord with the Palestinians, the sisters find themselves in an Israel torn between optimism and fatalism. Meanwhile their reunion becomes an occasion for all their shared memories of this place to come flooding back, and the siblings realize that they too are torn about what to do with their childhood home. Old resentments resurface when Darel tries to impose her will on the prickly Cali. Complicating matters considerably, apparitions begin making impromptu appearances, including the friendly ghosts of the sisters’ parents Mona and Zack, kvetching away in broad daylight.
