Gerald Elias Synopsis: Prince of the Leaf Cutters by Gerald Elias questions the long held belief that humans are the culmination of evolutionary progress. In the middle of a long-running ethnic war, Pavlovic, a simple factory worker, flees his homeland for what he hopes will be a new life in the United States. However, he is disappointed to find the same animosities he thought he had left behind and a society that is uncaring and indifferent. In desperation, he heads to Costa Rica, which by earlier accounts he imagines will be paradise on earth. Pavlovic’s initial optimism for the future is soon replaced by despair. Trapped in this never-ending downward spiral of ethnic warfare, indifference and, ultimately, degradation, Pavlovic loses everything, including his mind.
