When the story of the unspeakable has been told a thousand times, when the images of the unimaginable have been shown a thousand times, when the mind is numb - where do you go from there? You have to start anew. That is where this film begins on the banks of the river Danube, surrounded by the beautiful landscape of Upper Austria lies the picturesque town of Mauthausen. Two kilometres from its town centre is a place that attracts busloads of tourists, parties of schoolchildren, people from all over the world. Tour guides come to work here everyday while nearby the locals go about their daily lives. This is a place where thousands upon thousands of people from over 30 nations were tortured and murdered. How does it feel to be a tourist at a former concentration camp? How does it feel to work here as a guide, day in day out? How does it feel to live here as a local with the dark secrets of the past? And what of those who've chosen this town to be their new home?
