According to Police Inspector Avraham, “Regular kids don’t just disappear. They may decide to cut school, to get away from home for a few hours, or be too ashamed to come home because they’ve done something unforgivable. But they don’t simply disappear.” But when a 16-year-old boy inexplicably vanishes from suburban Tel Aviv, the guilt-ridden detective assumes an active role in the inquiry.
