After being left for dead and waking up in a shallow grave, Jacob runs to the first hiding place he sees, a broken down barn. Delirious from his injuries, Jacob notices a tin of fresh water placed beside him and soon after, Leah reveals herself to him.

The intimate relationship that develops in this barn, in the shadow of the Holocaust, is both uplifting and tragic. The story of two young lovers serves as a fable for the human condition– and as a ray of hope.
