Two life stories crossing each other's paths, two heroes, a second chance and one city.
Ruth runs away. Escaped with a gun hidden in her clothes and a large sum of money in cash. She plans her disappearance meticulously and leaves nothing to chance.
Uri is lost. Seeking refuge, refuge from the life he destroyed, from the guilt that suffocates him. He does not know where his face is headed, drifting like a leaf in the wind of the storm that shook his life.
Both find themselves in the same place - in Yeruham, a city whose name expresses comfort and promise - among strangers who quickly become friends, family.
Ruth's and Uri's stories run parallel until Ruth's past infects her and pushes her into Uri's path. The collision crushes the fragile peace they have managed to build with great effort and puts their choices and freedom to the test.
There is a place is a story about hiding and atonement, about our power to save ourselves and the power of a community to redeem us.
