From Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Nilo Cruz (Anna in the Tropics), comes a story of the resiliency of true love and the enduring power of memories. German-born novelist Bemadette Kahn lost the love of her life during World War II when he fled Nazi Germany on the S. S. St. Louis, a ship carrying 937 Jewish refugees seeking haven in North America. Both Cuba and the U.S. turned the ship away, leaving many of the passengers to return to Europ
e and perish in Nazi Concentration Camps. Bemadette’s past resurfaces when a young Jewish-Cuban writer contacts her to research the ship’s tragic voyage. As their relationship deepens, they are enveloped by a transcendent romance based on her memories of her great lost love.

De Nilo Cruz, el primer dramaturgo Latino en ganar el reconocido premio Pulitzer por su obra Ana en el Trópico, viene una historia de la elasticidad del verdadero amor y el poder permanente de los recuerdos. La novelista Aleman, Bernadette Kahn, perdió al amor de su vida durante la Segunda Guerra Mundial, cuando huía de la Alemania durante el regimen nazi en el S. S. St. Louis, un barco con 937 refugiados judíos que buscan asilo en Norteamérica. Ambos Cuba como los Estados Unidos rechazaron al barco, devolviendo a los pasajeros a Europa a morir en campos de concentración nazis. El pasado de Bernadette vuelve resurge cuando un joven escritor judío-cubano la contacta para investigar la trágica travesía del barco. A medida que su relación se profundiza, Bernadette y el joven se ven envueltos en un romance que trasciende el tiempo y vive en los recuerdos de un gran amor perdido.
