Sara Silverstein is looking forward to returning to the Netherlands with her family after many years living as an expat in LA. Her happiness about reuniting with her elderly parents and sister is overshadowed almost immediately by a series of anti-Semitic violent assaults, which reveal a dark family secret.

The horrors of WWII still reverberate in this chilling and original thriller, written and directed by Oscar-nominated filmmaker Menno Meyjes (co-writer of The Color Purple and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade).
