THE GIRL WHO COUNTED NUMBERS is the story of an independent, Jewish-American girl who despite her protestations gives in to her father and leaves for Israel to solve a family mystery. The hunt for any evidence of her uncle takes her to unexpected places where she must confront parts of the past she never knew.
