59E59 presents this dark fairy tale that explores the lives that were torn apart by war, and asks what it truly means to belong. More…
Shari was born in a war-ravaged country, alone and fending for herself; Clara grew up in New York with the best of everything. These two very different characters—who led two very different lives—meet in an explosive encounter and discover a shared secret from their past. This presentation is made possible through the support of the Romanian Cultural Institute in New York.
