System Details:
In the aftermath of World War II, Susanne Wallner returns from a concentration camp to find that her Berlin apartment is occupied by Dr. Hans Mertens, a former officer in the German army who has been severely traumatized by the atrocities perpetrated by his superiors. The unlikely pair form a delicate friendship as they struggle to restore some normalcy to their hellishly bleak existence. By chance Mertens one day encounters Bruckner, his former Nazi commander, who has not only readjusted to civilian life but seems to have economically benefited from his wartime command.
