In the aftermath of a devastating civil war, Antigone is left standing in the ruins. One of her dead brothers is declared a traitor, while the other is proclaimed a hero. Kreon, the city’s appointed ruler, leaves his traitorous nephew’s body to rot beyond the city walls. Defying the command of her uncle, Antigone buries her brother in secret, turning this intimate act of duty into an act of rebellion, triggering a domino effect that shakes her home nation to its core. Her defiance illuminates the tactics her family employs to deal with chaos and brings their city to question our relationship to our blood, the privilege of remembrance, and the structures established by humans to understand the conditions and logic of a past that weighs on our present.
