Against the backdrop of a school play in a German school, George, a second grade student, will find himself center stage, as the protagonist and victim of a rash of racist incidents within a deeply divided society. In this climate, he will strive to maintain his power and dignity. With allies Jaffer and Andreas, his Turkish and German classmates, but also with the help of Professor Michael, he will realize that friendship doesn’t care about countries or nationalities, nor does it take into account religions and social inequalities. The action will escalate alongside the rehearsals for the school play – a play about the Passion of Christ.
Violence and prejudice alternate with compassion and solidarity in this topical and socially relevant novel.
