Germany. A Winter's Tale.

by Jan Bonny

Germany. A Winter's Tale.


Becky, Tommi and Maik are a three-headed rightwing terror cell, which lives underground and dreams of nationwide attention. Entangled in a complex relationship
of love, hate and friendship their path of destruction leads to a series of violent crimes. Their ostensible values like honor, pride and loyalty increasingly suffer a loss of meaning.
