The one-act opera explores the horrors of the Holocaust as experienced by a Jewish woman trapped by the anti-Semitic ethos of the Third Reich, and ostracized by her family for marrying a non-Jew. Now, abandoned by her husband, she struggles to save her children from the inferno that threatens to engulf them. On the eve of their escape, an encounter with a fugitive from a concentration camp forces her to choose between freedom and the fire.
