Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
Set at the end of World War II, in a crumbling Bavarian castle that once played host to all of German high society, a powerful and propulsive story of three widows whose lives and fates become intertwined. All three women must come to terms with the choices that have defined their lives before, during, and after the war - each with their own unique share of challenges. This is a dramatic yet nuanced portrait of war and its repercussions that explores what it means to survive, love, and, ultimately, to forgive in the wake of unimaginable hardship.
