The year is 1882. A young servant girl named Esther disappears from a small Hungarian village. Several Jewish men from the village of Tisza Eszvar face the `blood libel' - the centuries-old calumny that Jews murder Christian children for their blood. A14-year-old Jewish boy named Morris Scharf becomes the star witness of corrupt authorities who coerce him into testifying against his fellow Jews, including his own father, at the trial. This powerful fictionalised account of one of the last blood libel trial in Europe is told through the eyes of Julie, another servant girl.
