“…an easily accessible, finely crafted drama of reconciliation…magically life-affirming” – The Independent

In 1968, 20-year-old Laura returns to Munich to attend her father's funeral. Overcome with grief, Laura and her mother must face the family's traumatic history: having survived the Holocaust, Laura's parents stayed in post-War Germany to start a new life. However, their horrific experiences of genocide and concentration camps loomed over their daily lives. Now, in the face of another tragedy, will Laura come to understand her parent's traumatic past?

Michael Verhoeven (Good Girl) returns to reassume his role as the “nasty boy” of German cinema, and artfully presents a biting commentary on post-War German society through the cinematic adaptation of the autobiographical novel by Laura Waco. Elegantly filmed, Verhoeven gently builds the tension that probes the complex notion of German-Jewish identity.
