The story of a Jewish stand-up comedian who is slowly taken over by "the ghost" of his sister who died in a concentration camp.
12 November 2006 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

Daniel is the son of death camp survivors and works as a stand up comedian in the style of Lenny Bruce. This is an intense, shocking, confrontational, psychological drama in which Daniel must deal with his nightmares, the haunting memories of his dead sister, and the possibility of his redemption through love and fatherhood.

Daniel pleases his hospitalized mother by dressing to resemble his sister Hannah, who died in a Nazi concentration camp. After his girlfriend drops him, he takes up with naive Texan Lilian, who is attempting to solve the mystery of her Nazi father's link to chemical businessman Wittfogel.
