Isak sat on her side, on the floor, still collapsed in a fetal position, and looked terrified at the happenings. She thought to herself that this is just a bad dream and that she will wake up and realize this is not actually happening: mother will fry pancakes, father will call from London, and everything will be as it was. 12 years old Isak, lives with her family in an English village, where life passes by calmly. Each one of the house's residents is troubled with their own things: Isak is craving for good company, her twin brothers fill the house with animals, and her older sister has a crush on her tutor. Their world abruptly collapses when their father decides to leave the house. Together with their mother, they need to deal with a new painful and scary situation, but with time they discover each other, and each finds the light in his life. Falling Stars is a moving human story, riddled with crisis and difficulties, but full of optimism and hope.
