From the Publisher. A border town in the steppe. The plain dives a group feral refugees. They cause fear and anxiety in the city. If Pontus Beg, commissioner of police, lets them pick up their luggage, it is evidence of a crime found. Beg unravels the story of their journey from hell, which gradually becomes intertwined with the discovery of the story about his own identity. The encounter with an old rabbi, the last Jew of the city, teaches him to know the truth about themselves. With humor and wisdom  Tommy Wieringa connects the dark inner world of man with the question of who we are and that redemption is possible.
