Sara Silverstein is excited about moving back to the Netherlands with her family after many years in LA. Her happiness about reuniting with her elderly parents and sister is overshadowed, however, by a series of anti-Semitic violent assaults, which reveal a dark family secret. The horrors of the Second World War still reverberate in this chilling and original thriller, written and directed by celebrated Dutch filmmaker Menno Meyjes (co-writer of The Colour Purple and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade).
