While on a research trip to Germany, a young Catholic teacher stumbles upon a photo of a Jewish prisoner in Buchenwald who bears a striking resemblance to his father. His discovery prompts him to look into his family’s past and the secrets he uncovers call into question everything he thought he knew about them and himself. A gripping and stylish thriller, full of unexpected twists and turns, adapted from Fabrice Humbert’s semi-autobiographical, prize-winning novel of the same name. Screened at Boston Jewish Film Festival, 2016
