HD – Farbe – Dolby SRD

The beautiful summer of 1945 in the Owl Mountains. A provisional orphanage is created for 10 children that have just been liberated from the Gross Rosen concentration camp. The orphanage is located in a mysterious abandoned palace lost in the forest. 20-year-old Hanka, a former prisoner herself, becomes their guardian. The resolute protagonists regain strength and joy after the terrible time of the camp. But the terror returns and breaks the fairy tale. German shepherds from the camp set free by the SS officers just before the camp was liberated now roam the forests. The group of hungry dogs trained to kill surrounds the palace. All attempts to get out fail. The children, without food or water, start to go wild again and it seems that nothing can save them in the confrontation with the beasts – following the lowest of instincts seems to be the only way to survive. But the roles of the hunters and the game are about to change in a surprising and unexpected way…
