On This Happy Note
Anat Gov, one of the most influential playwrights in Israeli theatre, is preparing for her death. She asks Arik Kneller, an artists’ agent, to 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 can be a happy ending.
Almost a decade after her death, her loved ones try to fill the void left by her words with their own.
Through excerpts from her plays and footage of her family & political world, a new script is written: one in which the line between the play and reality is blurred.
