It is Passover, 1865. The Civil War has just ended and Confederate officer Caleb DeLeon returns to Virginia to find his home destroyed, his family missing, and only two former slaves remaining. Badly wounded, Caleb must depend on the two men, Simon and John, to save his life. The three men wrestle with their shared past, their uncertain futures, and the bitter irony of Jewish slave-owning, and as the sun sets on the last night of Passover, bitter secrets and painful truths burst to the surface in this haunting and powerful play.
