In the fall of 1940, the family of László Nussbaum, a young man from the Romanian town of Turda, moved to the city of Cluj, which had just become part of Hungary along with Northern Transylvania. As they were Hungarian speakers, here they were hoping for a better life in a country where they thought they would feel at home. Shortly after, they found themselves in a freight train on its way to Auschwitz. The only survivor of his family, László brings back to life the atmosphere of war-torn Transylvania and explores the meanings of such experiences as survival, hope, and forgiveness.
