The Last Supper
It is on the night of the 2016 American presidential election that Julia—an American academic who has made a career in Basque Studies—receives news of the suicide of Xabier, an old Basque friend. The news of his death brings Julia back to her first meeting with Xabier and another young Basque priest, Josu, in Bilbao in 1968 during the height of the Franco dictatorship. As the night of the election proceeds, Julia finds herself torn between two continents and fifty years of history. She remembers the fate that befell the two priests and their tragic life paths, and at the same time tries to reconcile the disturbing changes that are taking place in her own country.
What can we do when the past repeats itself? Julia finds herself wondering. What are our obligations to the present, and to the future?
