1949

A Film by Paul Florian Müller

Synopsis

The year 1949 in Germany: a man wakes up in a cellar, next to him two dead bodies. He doesn’t remember who he is or what happened. An investigator tries to find out if the man is a suspect or a victim. The psychological cat-and-mouse game between the two men turns into a race against time.
