Who is to blame for the greatest of all crimes? Facing extermination in Auschwitz, a group of prisoners solemnly weighs the case against the Lord God, in "God on Trial." Stellan Skarsgard, Antony Sher, Rupert Graves and Dominic Cooper head the cast of this harrowing drama about believers and non-believers coming to terms with a world drenched in evil and suffering.
Faced with the terrors of Auschwitz, a group of prisoners puts God on trial for abandoning His chosen people.
