Die Herberge

A Film by Ysabel Fantou

Synopsis

“The Shelter” is a German-Arabic culture-clash comedy, based on true events: Erwin and Hildegard get lost whilst on a hiking holiday in Bavaria. They end up in a strange guest house, not knowing that it’s long closed and now a refugee shelter. Only when demanding the bill for the delicious meal, the truth unravels.
