Storyline

It is the end of World War II. The Reich is crumbling; the Russians are advancing. Only the shadows of men still remain. Into this silence, into these woods, two boys escape the guns of the death marches for an even deadlier journey--finding a way home. But they are not alone. Out of the chaos emerge two stray German soldiers retreating from the front lines. Trapped in the middle of a torrential snowstorm, all four find shelter in the same abandoned barn. When their paths cross the following morning, each of their lives are tragically changed forever. Written by Jared Micah Herman and Matthew Wersinger <mwersinger@twilightentertainment.com>

One of the most mature, fascinating short films I have seen in a long time. The director is in for a long career if he keeps up this level of work.

I saw this screened at Cinequest, and was blown away by it. I was shocked to learn that the director is so young. I look forward to seeing his future projects. The movie did not leave my mind for weeks afterwards.
