An industrial port of a war torn city; women survivors wait to be shipped abroad. Officials come and go. A grandmother, once queen, watches as her remaining family is taken from her one by one.
The city burns around them.
Only the dead shed no tears. They are beyond weeping.
How can we suffer this and learn to bear it?
