Brief synopsis

Martin Goldsmith’s childhood home is filled with secrets about his parents past. When he confronts his ageing father, we are led back to Germany in 1930ties, where Martins parents, as young musicians are part of the newly established Jüdischer Kulturbund, lead by Goebbels. Here they give their all to the music before they realize, what the horrible aim of the project is.
