The authentic story of a Jewish girl who grows up in Wels in the late 1960s disguised as a good Catholic girl by her parents. Nazi ideology still remains deeply anchored in the minds of most of the people there. Thus, the uppermost axiom drummed into her mind by her mother: stay calm and never attract attention. In the small town, no one wants to wake the “schlafenden Hunde” (sleeping dogs) of the past. But the young woman no longer wants to hide her identity. Production notes
