A peaceful, isolated community is engulfed by the hatred and violence of the outside world in this taut drama set in pre-war Germany.

Levi, the Jewish cattle dealer, makes his annual trip to a remote farming village hoping to conduct his business and win the hand of farmer Horger's lovely daughter, Lisbeth. But things have changed since Levi's last visit.The poison of Nazi propaganda has infected the town, and this once serene haven has become alien and dangerous.Although he swears that he has no enemies, Levi realizes that he has become a target and that for Lisbeth and him, time is running out.

This award-winning feature debut of documentary filmmaker Didi Danquart from the play by Thomas Strittmatter is a riveting, often shocking, tale that, using a stunning tapestry of images, explores the effects of exclusion and hostility with unflinching honesty.
