Description
In an unnamed country at the end of a world war, Paul Miller escapes from a labor camp, collapsing after a few hundred feet. Taken in by a young woman he learns to love, Paul decides to stay where he is, and, as the war ends, he marries, starts a family, and helps to rebuild the village. But Paul is inescapably haunted by his life before the war, by his time in the camp, and by the fact that the people who are now his friends ignored for years the horrors in their midst. So when the camp's commander suddenly returns to the village, Paul finds himself forced to choose between vengeance and forgiveness. "The Game of Opposites "is a universal tale of good and evil, and a stunning evocation of the capability for both within us all.
