Ghetto is based on the true story of a theatre company that functioned in the Jewish Vilnia ghetto in Lithuania, amidst the darkest days of the Holocaust, where cabaret-style performance, music, and dance become a metaphor of the indestructibility of the human spirit. Founded as a tactic of survival by the ghetto’s Jewish council, the theatre’s vital and dynamic performances of scenes, songs, and dances become a center of solidarity for the oppressed community facing imminent annihilation. The performances in the theatre are a vigorous and moving reminder that there is a heroic life of the spirit, and of art, neither of which can be crushed.
