Nel 1941, per evitare la deportazione, gli abitanti di uno shetl (villaggio ebraico dell'Europa centrale) romeno allestiscono un finto convoglio ferroviario sul quale alcuni di loro sono travestiti da soldati tedeschi e partono nel folle tentativo di raggiungere il confine con l'URSS e di lì proseguire per la Palestina, Eretz/Israel, la terra promessa.

In September 1871, Paul Verlaine, a poet, young but already established in Paris, received a letter from the provinces containing eight extraordinary poems by one Arthur Rimbaud. He wrote back at once, saying: "My dear great soul, come to us, you are summoned, you are expected." What follows is their story directly taken from their letters and poetry. While Verlaine was a great poet, Rimbaud was a genius, a revolutionary. His poems from age sixteen to the age of nineteen forever changed the face of modern poetry. Together, these two men feed each other's insatiable hunger for life and love, trying desperately to straddle the lines between knowledge and self-destruction, creativity and delusion
