RED SNOW SYNOPSIS:
Inspired by the stories of survivors of the Rape of Nanking, the production marks the 75th anniversary of this forgotten holocaust of WWII. RED SNOW is a story of love and the struggle to reconcile the past with the present in the search for peace and healing. Isabel’s recurring nightmare of her grandparents’ favorite Chinese opera drives her to search for their silenced story. On her journey she falls in love with Jason, a man who is connected to the same forgotten holocaust. Their love unleashes three generations of guilt and pain perpetuated by a massacre still denied by the perpetrators today. When their lives collide they struggle to reconcile the past with the present – for themselves and their families, shaken from their lifelong silence by Isabel’s pilgrimage to uncover the secrets of her grandmother’s history … and her own.
