Description

A humorous and moving look at Jewish life in post-war Germany. In Frankfurt, David Bermann is a Holocaust survivor with dreams of a new life in America. But that takes money, and smooth-talking David has an idea. Recruiting six survivor friends, he teaches them the tricks of his former trade: how to use flattery and chutzpah to sell bed linens. Meanwhile, questions about Bermann’s past catch up with him, and US special agent Sara Simon wants answers. Featuring a charming lead performance by Moritz Bleibtreu (Run Lola Run).
