Hannah Moscovitch's gripping memory play about redemption from the sins of our fathers.

Standing outside his father's study in Paraguay, Rudi is smoking cigarettes, trying to work up the courage to go in. It has been seven years since he left his family and their history behind him.
As a teenager Rudi grew up in Paraguay, blissfully unaware his father was a Nazi SS doctor at Auschwitz. When a friend reveals the truth a devastated Rudi searches for ways to humiliate and hurt his father. He flees to Berlin to invent a new life when in the archives of a library he meets Sarah, the daughter of a Holocaust survivor. His path to redemption blurs as the past catches up with him and Rudi is forced to confront his obsession, his father and their history.
