ABOUT THE FILM

Father

A man well-settled into the Autumn of his life, Joe Mueller (Oscar® nominee Max von Sydow, The Exorcist) is lovingly supported by his daughter Anne (Carol Drinkwater, All Creatures Great And Small) and her husband Bobby (Steve Jacobs, Blue Murder), a close-knit family ill-prepared for the dark secrets that are about to be uncovered.

Tracked down by Holocaust survivor Iya Zetnick (AFI Award winner Julia Blake, Travelling North) Joe is soon exposed as a concentration camp functionary responsible for murdering her family back in Lithuania. Branded a war criminal and subject to all manner of speculation and charge, Joe faces a heart wrenching ordeal – forgoing his once idyllic existence for a life of turmoil and paranoia – with his family his only refuge. But when Anne discovers the extent of her father’s suspicious past, she is unwittingly torn between the devastating truth and her loyalty to family.
