This is a short play set in New York in the late 1930s. Phillip Gellburg is the only Jew in a high position at a very wasp Wall Street bank. Shortly after reading reports of Kristallnacht and seeing photographs of old Jews beaten and homeless on the streets of Germany, Philip's wife Sylvia becomes partly paralyzed, unable to move her legs. All of Sylvia's longings and fears for the Jews under Hitler are manifest in her state, which her husband can't or won't recognize as anything but hysteria. He continues to be willfully blind to events in Germany and to the anti-semitism of his own boss.
