The Last Chapter of A.B. Yehoshua is a portrait of one of the greatest Israeli writers living today as he deals with a serious illness, widowhood, and loneliness, but chooses love and embarks on his final journey. A rare and fascinating study, the film is both a biography of the writer and a look at where he is now, as he protests that he does not want to write anymore, yet keeps writing, and that he is ready, after struggling with health issues in recent years, to say goodbye to life. Born in Jerusalem (where his acquaintances included Amos Oz and former president Reuven Rivlin), to a father who was a scholar and historian, fluent in Arabic, and a Moroccan-born mother who was also very engaged with culture, Yehoshua was exposed to an unusually wide range of influences at home. Today he is counted among the most widely read authors in Israel and his works are deeply rooted in Jewish culture and the Israeli way of life.
