In Damascus, the son and the father, each carrying his own defeats, stand face to face. Their daily dialogue transcends their personal boundaries to become a dialogue between two generations. The first is satiated by the defeats of the 20th century, and the second experienced a defeat recently after finding himself imprisoned by war and catastrophe across the board. Each of them discusses his dialogue/conflict with the other about the utility of his existence. The work is a theatrical dramatization of Franz Kafka's text "Letter to My Father".
