Forgiveness (Vergebung)


An opulent wedding reception in the summer of 1991. In the course of the joyful day, memories of events are awakened that occurred half an eternity away: before 1989. One of the wedding guests is a victim of persecution, another is supposed to have been a persecutor and traitor. The conflict cannot be covered up: the more determined the family harmony is conjured up, the more pernicious are the signs indicating a different truth ... The film is an attempt to confront the entanglements and the highly intricate network of guilt, treachery and forgiveness.
