      My question is: is this a movie? Or is this a few scenes for a larger movie about survival, hope, perseverance and faith?

      Can you clarify WHY he wants to give his illegitimate son a proper Jewish burial? What is his motivation? And what are the stakes if he doesn’t succeed?

        It was a critically acclaimed, feature length film (A 95% rating at Rotten Tomatoes)

        >>Can you clarify WHY he wants to give his illegitimate son a proper Jewish burial?

        The lead character is a Jew who has managed to stay alive in Auschwitz by working as a Sonderkommando hauling dead bodies from the gas chambers to the ovens. His motivation is to give the body of his son a dignified burial — something none of the other tens of thousands of bodies will get.

        The stakes are life and death: he will be executed on the spot if the German guardsĀ  discover what he is doing.
