In 1941, almost 1,600 Jews were burned to death in the Polish city of Jedwbane. The official story placed the blame on occupying Nazi forces, but two studies have since shown that the real authors of the crime were the very neighbors and companions of the victims.
Ten classmates, five Catholics and five Jews, who become executioners and victims in the moment of the act, and who then, years later, during fourteen scenes/ lessons, take on the roles of the tortured survivors and the ghosts who eternally haunt the minds of the assassins.
The author paints a portrait of souls incapable of finding peace; that which has touched them has marked them forever, and even after their deaths, they yet carry the pain within them.
External events can affect our internal lives without us being aware of the process, and thus the contemplation of our manner of being and a collective historical memory become essential elements for the evolution of humanity.
