Rosa and the Executioner of the Fiend

Open All Close All

  • "Rosa, a Holocaust survivor, is an octogenarian widow who has lived alone for more than 50 years in an apartment across from the UN. When an intruder gets hold of her place, she takes him for a thief, a rapist, and then a Nazi agent. But Amaury is none of these. His mission is "to execute the greatest SOB the world has ever known." The drama that connects these two fictional characters is based on five real-life episodes: the 1939 escape of thousands of Jews from Germany aboard the St. Louis; their arrival in Havana and entry denial; the indifference of the U.S., which sent them back to Europe; the tragedy of the Cuban children who participated in the Pedro Pan Rescue Project; and a historical UN General Assembly of world leaders. As Rosa and Amaury find themselves in shared dilemmas that threaten their lives, they must somehow meet halfway to help each other survive."
