Detroit Jewish Film Festival

1945 - the war is over and Switzerland was all but spared. In this 6-part mini series, Klara, her fiance Johann, and his brother Egon all look to the future. Klara tries to mend the wounds of the war by caring for young, displaced holocaust survivors. Johann, who works for Klara's industrialist father, hopes to save and modernize his father-in-law's textile company. Just home from military service, Egon takes his first steps in the Attorney General's office, working to hunt down escaped Nazis.

All three of them soon realize that the facade of peace is bought with the blood of the victims of war. Johann's professional ambitions bring him closer to those who committed unspeakable war crimes. Klara risks her marriage while growing ever closer to Herschel, one of the survivors. And Egon finds himself caught in a system that willingly turns a blind eye towards Nazi criminals for the sake of profit.
