Amazing how WWII has provided an endless wealth of story-lines for movies, and yet ... here comes an entirely new viewpoint: Hitler has fallen, and a teenage girl and her younger siblings, children of Nazi parents, wander across war-torn Germany, looking for refuge. The movie does not fall into the trap of portraying them as innocent bystanders, but does help us look at the world through their eyes - and realize how abusive it is to structure your entire family's life on an ideology (any ideology). Youngsters' brains are molested, just because their parents absolutely knew what was right.
