Torberg's War

A young, attractive yoga teacher, Claire is lured from Seattle to a remote, deserted nursing home in the snowy Carpathian Mountains in Romania. There Paul Torberg, a 96-year-old Nazi war criminal has a merciless fight with his hate-filled grandson who wants a bloody revenge for his brutally massacred ancestors in World War II. The fierce duel becomes a cat-and-mouse game in which reality, imagination and submerged memories are intertwined. Think „The Shining” in a Nazi nursing home.
