For some people in post–World War II Germany, the battle
is not over.
August 1945. As Stefano, an Italian POW, heads toward home
across war-ravaged Germany, he encounters a young child
beside his dead mother. Unable to leave him to an unknown
fate, Stefano takes the boy with him, finding refuge in a
seemingly abandoned house in a secluded woodland.
But the house is far from vacant. Stefano wakes at the
arrival of its owner, Erich, a former German soldier, who
invites the travelers to stay until they can find safe
passage home. Stefano cautiously agrees, intrigued by the
disarming German, his reclusive neighbor Rosalind, and her
traumatized husband, Georg. Stefano is also drawn to
Monique, the girl in a photograph on Rosalind’s wall, who
went missing during the war.
But when he discovers letters written by Monique, a darker
truth emerges. This place of refuge could be one of
reckoning, and the secrets of the past might prevent the
travelers from ever getting home.
