In Vichy, France in 1942, eight men and a boy are seized by the collaborationist authorities and made to wait in a building that may be a police station. Some of them are Jews. All of them have something to hide – if not from the Nazis, then from their fellow detainees and, inevitably, from themselves. In this claustrophobic antechamber to the death camps, everyone is guilty And perhaps none more so than those who can walk away alive.
