An examination of an Israeli theater group's controversial performance of "Arbeit macht fret," a freeform play which has incited much interest for its caustic take on contemporary Israeli fixations with the Holocaust. The performers consist of: religiously observant Iraqi Jew Moni Yosef, Czech camp survivor's daughter Madi Maayan, and Muslim Palestinian Khaled Abu Ali who founded the Akko Theatre Center.
