Abstract:

Toni Goldblatt's awakening to taboo sexual desires conflicts with her Holocaust-scarred parents' expectations. Yearning to reinvent herself, she flees Montreal and heads to Israel in the wake of the 1967 war, but the Zionist dream doesn't save her; instead, she finds the realities of life in the middle East more complex than she imagined, and that her quest for normalcy has been thwarted. Only on her return to montreal, when she discovers kindred spirits in the underground lesbian bar scene, does Toni begin to accept herself and find her own path. --
