A twentieth century Antigone, 'Zina' evokes the life of Zina Bronstein, daughter of Leon Trotsky. In 1930's Berlin, Zina is being treated by Professor Kronfeld and during this psychoanalysis, which includes some hypnosis, she recalls incidents both from her own life and that of her father, as a leader of the revolution, as the holder of state power and later in exile. Against the background of the progressive deterioration of the situation in Europe, threatened by the rise of fascism and the spectre of the Second World War, Zina's identification with Antigone becomes more and more credible. What were her hallucinations begin to take objective form on the streets. The dynamics of Greek Tragedy, always waiting in the wings, step forward to take control.
