A historical docudrama about the child refugee crisis resulting from Hitler's 1937 bombing of the Basque town of Gernika and Picasso's artistic response to the event. The script weaves primary source material and documentation with imaginative fiction. The film draws from a 2019 reading of the play staged at Chino Community Theatre, directed by Paul Larson, and produced by TFDP students.
The play contains historical footage, tense situations, and references to historical violence.
