Back In Berlin

Haifa Film Festival

Shortly after his father dies, Bobby returns to England and finds an old suitcase revealing the truth his father hid - about his family who perished in the Holocaust. He invites Manuel, his childhood friend with a German background, to translate the documents. Manuel shares that he too discovered a family secret: his great-uncle is the infamous Nazi director Veit Harlan, who directed "Jew Süss" - the most notorious anti-Semitic propaganda film in history. Together they embark on a journey to Berlin, that puts their friendship to the test.
