In the midst of life, Israeli architect Skip Landau makes a discovery he cannot share with anyone: an inner voice is calling him to places where a catastrophe is about to take place – a train derailment in Paris, a plane crash in Amsterdam. Apparently he is meant to ferry individual victims across into death. This new role, thrust upon him so suddenly, threatens his marriage and almost breaks apart his family in Tel Aviv. Only late does he understand that he must not only lead the dying to death, but also the living to life – his sons and himself included.
