Full Plot

Simon is an outcast from his Jewish community because he claims that the devil talks to him and he has the ability to put curses on crops. When Dovid asks the 'Squire' to sell him some land so he can build a railway station, a ruthless businessman from the neighbouring gentile community uses Simon to find out who wants to buy the land so he can 'persuade' him otherwise.

Quotes

Simon: I have seen God, and he is a blind beggar peddling lies! He has sold the world to the Devil and left only the husk for himself! Satan is master here! The sparrow-eater! [Hase is watching Simon shoveling food into his mouth] Maximillian Hase: No, don't go, Buchholz, stay and watch Simon eat. It's... interesting.
