Everyone has scars in this stirring period drama.

In April 1865, a wounded Jewish Confederate soldier returns to his home in Richmond only to find it ruined and abandoned – except for two former slaves also raised in the Jewish faith. As the three men celebrate Passover, they uncover a tangle of secrets and grapple with an uncertain future brought on by the end of the Civil War.
