FRANKFURT,1946. DAVID BERMANN AND HIS FRIENDS HAVE ESCAPED THE Nazi regime and are now living in a displaced persons camp dreaming of leaving for America. But how will they get the money in these tough post-war times? The smooth-talking businessman focuses on what the Germans now need most: fine bed linens nicely wrapped in amusing stories! Business flourishes and a bright new future can be seen in the horizon, but questions about Bermann’s past catch up with him. Could he have collaborated with the Nazis? A smart and uncompromising US officer, Sara Simon refuses to close the investigation.
Preceded by the Award winning Short: Mr. Bernstein with guests Director Francine Zuckerman and writer Deb Filler.
