Jonah moves with his girlfriend Annika to Laramie, Wyoming, where she’s starting her PHD in Astrobiology; and as Annika gets pulled into the swirl of graduate school, Jonah feels increasingly isolated in his new surroundings and is unable to continue his French translation work. Annika convinces him to take advantage of a free, 10-day ‘birthright’ trip to Israel to clear his head, but Jonah makes an early and unexpected return from the trip when something traumatic happens to him in Jerusalem. Although he’s shaken and somehow changed by the experience, he is unwilling to talk about it; and Annika is forced to piece together an unclear narrative from the series of daily postcards he sent her from Israel, arriving in Laramie weeks later.
