the ledge - flash version*

*

Yann Andréa Steiner is a haunting dance between two parallel stories of love and solitude: the love between the reminiscing Duras and the young, sensitive Yann Andréa, and a seaside romance witnessed - or imagined - by the narrator between a camp counselor and an orphaned camper: a Holocaust survivor who witnessed his sister's murder at the hands of a German soldier. Through this mix of memory and desire, the summer of 1980 flows into 1944 in an enigmatic journey through history, creation, and raw emotion.
