On a rainy night in a WWII concentration camp, a condemned Jewish doctor is recruited to perform emergency surgery on a Nazi general's dying son. With nothing left to lose, the doctor refuses to aid his hated enemy, but when offered his freedom in exchange, he is faced with an unthinkable moral dilemma.
Based on a true story, The Desperate offers a provocative reflection on the relationship between justice and mercy and ultimately celebrates the triumph of human dignity. This deeply moving drama challenges us to consider our commitment to human dignity and our understanding of God's grace.
Winner of 67 international film awards, including "Best Short Film" at the prestigious Hollywood Film Festival, The Desperate was declared "a masterpiece" by an international panel of judges at the Levante International Film Festival in Italy.
