With the aid of a fellow Auschwitz survivor and a hand-written letter, an elderly man with dementia goes in search of the person he believes to be responsible for the death of his family in the death camp to kill him himself.
"Remember" is the contemporary story of Zev, who discovers that the Nazi guard who murdered his family some 70 years ago is living in America under an assumed identity. Despite the obvious challenges, Zev sets out on a mission to deliver long-delayed justice with his own trembling hand. What follows is a remarkable cross-continent road-trip with surprising consequences.Written by

Trooper Kurlander's truck is a white '87-91 Ford Bronco XLT repainted blue with the fender badges and factory antenna removed. Its brush guard, front seats, trailer ball and cover are aftermarket. The factory wheels have been painted black, as have the red stripes on their trim rings. Its internal spare tire and mount have been removed, and it lacks any antennas for police radios, revealing it to be a prop vehicle.

Oh. I'm sorry. Who are you?
