In this gripping, potent drama, a split-second decision at a traffic accident triggers repercussions for a Jewish surgeon. Simone, the son of a Holocaust survivor, rushes to the scene of a hit and run. But when he sees a swastika tattoo on the victim’s chest, he leaves the gravely wounded man to his fate. Wracked with guilt, the anguished doctor confronts the ethics of his choice and bonds with the victim’s daughter, embroiling himself in greater conflict. Thou Shalt Not Hate proposes profound questions about redemption and the paradoxes of the human soul in the face of hate.
