Sonja is a German high school student who participates in a writing contest and endeavors to write an essay about her town's history during the Third Reich and its resistance to it. To her dismay, and more so the town's, she uncovers instead definite collaboration during the period. As she digs deeper, she must struggle against the town's vocal and violent opposition to her search for the truth.

“Verhoeven paints a convincing picture of a small town with a big secret and asks serious questions about a still sensitive subject.”
                        -- Gary Duncan, Eye for Film

“this is a perceptive and insightful film that deserves a long look.”
                        -- Patrick Peters,

“a comedy as clear as aqua vitae, affording a compelling look at German dis-remembrance.”
                        -- Rita Kembley, Washington Post
