Written by Anna Ziegler

Orthodox Jews Esther and Schmuli have newly entered into an arranged marriage. Author Abe has entered a secret flirtatious correspondence with movie star Julia without their spouses’ knowledge. Swiveling between the 1970s and present day, The Wanderers is a mysterious new drama that puts a magnifying glass on the complications of love across generations and what it means to be happy.
