Richmond, Virginia, 1865. As Passover begins, the Civil War ends, and Caleb DeLeon – a young, Jewish confederate officer – returns home severely injured to discover his family’s estate in ruins. Simon and John, two of the DeLeon family’s newly freed slaves, have remained behind and are forced to take care of their former master. As the holiday celebrating the exodus from Egypt unfolds, tensions mount and long-kept secrets begin to surface that will change all three men forever. A gripping drama that explores the ties that bind, and questions the meaning of freedom.
