Storyline

From birth, Hanan and Lea were destined to be together, a promise made by their fathers and heard in Heaven. But Lea's father betrays this promise, kindling a conflict that will pit the modern against the secular and the devout against the divine. Mystical visions of the Holy Apple Field convince Hanan that their love can be the perfect "spiritual match", and to achieve it he unleashes untold powers of the Kabbala. Not even death can divide them; a powerful affirmation of love's infinite potential to transcend all obstacles. Written by L.H. Wong <lhw@sfs.org.sg>
