Two characters--one drawn from literature, the other from history--wind up as Hell's last tormented residents, each searching for the key to redemption.
Cared for and guided by the wise maid Sophie, Adolf strives to attain forgiveness and Ivan struggles with his inability to forgive.
Who will be the last man in Hell?
Endorsements & Reviews-

"Vicchio leads us to a provocative conclusion: the line between when it is morally perverse to forgive and when it is virtuous to do so is a very thin one indeed." -Rabbi David Fohrman, Senior Editor, Mesorah Publications' elucidated Babylonian Talmud
