The play portrays the transmission of the Holocaust trauma into Roni’s family and follows his journey to liberate himself from his internal Auschwitz and reclaim his right to exist. This gripping and inspirational drama courageously delivers the story of “third generation trauma”—the toxic effects of historical trauma on the family’s legacy—while also delivering a universal message of healing and hope.
