Synopsis:

Myer - a survivor of humanity's greatest crime - spends one final night alongside his beloved,
Leah. After over six decades since Leah became his wife, death has separated them. The
story takes place across one night during the ritual of Shemira, the Jewish tradition of
guarding a body from death to burial. We are the invisible witness to their intimate, private
farewell from one another - an outpouring of Myer's memories, from the seemingly
insignificant and incidental, to the life-changing and unexpected.
