Winner of the International Prix du Souvenir Award: A theater director and Holocaust survivor is confronted by a figure from his past
Behind the lights and glamour of Broadway, two men reckon with a shared past—one that hides a terrible secret. Jud Kramer is mounting his most painful and personal play while trying to enjoy life with his beautiful actress wife and baby daughter. Into his life comes Carl Walkowitz, a brooding, charismatic drifter who bears the scars of his concentration camp past.
One man lives in the past, and the other is holding tight to the present. Carl methodically pursues Jud until they find themselves on an empty stage, face to face in a struggle that only one of them can survive.
