The Screen Guide

Michelle knows little of her Jewish heritage. When her grandfather dies, she reconsiders her concept of family. Childhood memories interweave with loving preparation of matzo ball soup and endless games of scrabble. ABSENCE explores the problem of cultural identity in the modern world.
