Barry Edelstein
1933. In a university town in Western Germany, two young medical students, Karlanner and his friend, Tessow, debate the future of their country and that of Karlanner's relationship with his Jewish girlfriend, Helene. The elections draw near, Karlanner is thrown into a state of confusion. Persuaded to attend a Party meeting, he comes away swayed, and soon the elections confirm that the National Socialist Party has won. Now a member, Karlanner struggles with his beliefs, but no matter how repellent he finds the Nazis, he can't seem to shake them. Helene had changed his life, and he still loves her, so when he learns that she is in danger, his world crumbles around him. Finally, at any cost, he must take a stand.
