On This Happy Note


Anat Gov, one of the most influential playwrights in Israeli theater, is preparing for her death. She asks Arik Kneller, literary agent, be the executor of her will. Arik struggles to accept the humor and serenity with which she faces her upcoming end. Anat, consciously accepting her nearing end, wishes to leave a spiritual legacy: There is such a thing as a happy ending, it is possible to die in peace. Almost a decade after her death, her loved ones try to fill in the void which her words left. Through animated pieces from her plays, footage from her family & political world, a new script is written in which the line between the play and reality is blurred.
