Synopsis / Plot
Set in 1944 with Hitler's Final Solution well underway, "Fateless" is the semi-autobiographical tale of a 14 year-old Jewish boy in Budapest, who finds himself swept up by cataclysmic events beyond his comprehension. The boy is suddenly separated from his family as part of a frenzied deportation of the city's large Jewish population, and embarks on a dark surreal adventure in adversity and adaptation in a series of concentration camps. Following liberation, the boy confronts a general denial by both his Christian neighbors and Jewish family who escaped the deportation.
