The aging Gypsy busker plays his concertina...
his mind floods with memories… memories of the traditions of nomadic Transylvanian Gypsies, of his childhood marriage, her death in childbirth, Nazi persecution of his family and friends, life in the concentration camps… and his survival.
While he plays, a drama in the nearby shop unfolds.
‘Murderer! Murderer!’ the woman screams…
The accused old man denies and flees but she is sure he was a concentration camp commandant.
Is he really who she thinks he is?
Can she prove his identity?
Is it too late for him to be prosecuted?
Questions, but are there answers…
The memories of a young girl form the basis of this carefully plotted story of intrigue, old and new love, deprivation and suffering… a chessboard of destiny!
