Adrian Panek’s thriller is a story of trauma in a time of chaos. It’s 1945 at the notorious Gross Rosen concentration camp and for a group of children released into remote woodlands, the fear and suffering is not yet over. Taken into the care of a former inmate, they try to rebuild their lives - but guard dogs released from the camp are feral and hungry. Panek’s gritty, tense film is an account of their efforts to escape both past and present.
Audacious and ambitious, a controversial subject is brilliantly realised in a film which reaches way beyond its generic origins.Gráinne Humphreys, Festival Director
