Genre: Drama
by Jean-Claude Grumberg, directed by Moni Yakim

World War II devastated the face of Europe in a way that is difficult for those who were not there to understand. We can only try to imagine what it is like to live in a world torn to shreds. The post-war years of reconstruction reflected this devastation. When the war was finally over and the shouts of victory faded, the survivors were left to salvage what they could of their lives. "THE WORKROOM" is a portrait of these survivors—six women and two men—laboring desperately in a cramped and airless tailor's workroom as they attempt to repair their shattered lives.

The American version is by Daniel A. Stein with Sara O'Connor.
