Synopsis

When Micha comes back from Auschwitz, he expects to find back his wife, Zelda, and his son, Dan. Zelda is there, but not Dan. Zelda cannot explain what happened to him-she has her lost memory of everything. But the peculiar conditions of the night will help her regain remembrance of things past.
