Summary On a rainy night in a concentration camp, a ruthless Nazi general is forced to plead with a condemned Jewish doctor to save his dying son. With nothing left to lose, the doctor refuses to aid his hated enemies. But when he is offered his freedom in exchange, he is faced with an unthinkable moral dilemma. The Desperate offers a provocative reflection on the relationship between justice and mercy and serves as a powerful analogy of God's sacrificial grace.
