Anna is Anna Frank, the fifteen-year-old Jewish girl who died in Auschwitz after two years of hiding in an attic in Amsterdam. Zef is Zef Bunga, an Albanian boy her age, killed in a family feud that forced him to hide out at home for two years. Two youths, one real-life experience and another experience imagined in a possible reality, their earthly events separated in time and space but united by a single destiny: a life prematurely broken by the violence of adults. Meeting in an afterlife that reflects their eternal youth, and getting to know one another with the fun, levity and irreverence typical of their age, they share their stories and the new destiny that awaits them.
