It is April, 1865. The Civil War is over and throughout the South, slaves are being freed, soldiers are returning home and in Jewish homes, the annual holiday of Passover is being celebrated. Into the chaos of war-torn Richmond comes Caleb DeLeon, a young Jewish Confederate officer who has been severely wounded. He finds his family's home in ruins and abandoned, save for two former slaves, Simon and John, who wait in the empty house for the family's return. As the three men wait for signs of life to return to the city, they wrestle with their shared past, the bitter irony of Jewish slave-owning and the reality of the new world in which they find themselves.
