The play touches on anti-semitism and friction through the lens of delicatessen owners and their past traumas.

The play opens in a Manhattan deli on the eve of the 1972 Munich Olympics massacre. David and Yossi are orphaned brothers and survivors of Auschwitz-Monowitz who own Shapiro's, a struggling landmark delicatessen. Their delivery man has been viciously attacked in an anti-semitic hate crime. Across the street, a new German delicatessen and biergarten is preparing to open its doors. Suppressed traumas from the death camps reawaken and David, the older brother, yields to an "eye for an eye" vendetta. He calls on a Nazi hunter to investigate the restaurateur across the street. We watch as an explosion of friction and paranoia (probably justified) affects everyone involved.
