Description

A million-dollar Chagall painting is stolen during a singles' event at a New York museum. The painting has an unusual history, and now there is an unlikely thief - Benjamin Ziskind, a lonely former child prodigy who now writes questions for TV shows and who believes the painting once belonged to his family. Benjamin's moment of apparent madness in stealing the painting is just one such moment in a web of riveting stories. For him, for his family and for Chagall, life is a breathtaking collision course of past, present and future, and 'the world to come' starts right now.show more
