Sarah & Abraham is a stranger than fiction account of a woman's reach for miracles and her conflicted love for Montreal poet, Avi Boxer. It is a gripping tale of experiences that includes magic, sometimes black, by way of the captivating and devilish poet who played magician. The sacred and profane blurred in boundary, as did the very definition of morality, blessing and curse. Sarah's emotional and spiritual journey beginning with her escape from Nazi France is animated with plot twists of biblical proportion, peppered with equal parts wit and profundity.
