AND WE WERE LEFT DARKLING


Handsome heir of a wealthy banking family, Raoul Wallenberg travelled to WW2 Budapest to challenge Adolf Eichmann's deportation of Jews.

Good, evil, moral decency and moral baseness struggle against the backdrop of everyday, personal dramas of Hungarian Jews questioning their God’s presence or absence and asking how to act morally in such an immoral world.

SCREENPLAY



EICHMANN
Spare me your moralizing. At the end, I stood alone, defiant. And what did your God offer you? An historical footnote? No, not even that. (BEAT.) Your God believes in human sacrifice, as done mine. But your God spawns millions and then encourages you to love one another. So incompetent, so wasteful, so inefficient. And what is the promised end? Adoring minions sacrificing their lives in order to spend a tiresome eternity of monotonous harps and droning angels all praising Him. We needed a new God. One of strength, power and efficiency curbing the world’s teeming hordes through war, destruction and obliteration. My God, my Reich, also demands sacrifices . . . of the weak and ineffective.
