Former East Germany in the early 1980s. Paul tricked Georg into handing over his girlfriend Anna to him. But the pact they made stipulated that Georg can have her back when he wishes. Years pass. Anna and Paul are successful, married, with two children. Then Georg appears – and he hasn’t forgotten the pact.

Toplined by a cast consisting of some of Germany’s leading screen stars, the psycho-thriller A PACT unfolds a dense web of deceit and suspense that threatens to swallow up all who come into contact with the mysterious figures at the heart of the plot. Masterminding this gritty, nail-biting thriller is director Denis Dercourt, who has been hailed as a specialist of suspense since his feature film THE PAGE TURNER, which was screened in the Un Certain Regard section at the 2006 Cannes Film Festival, just as his feature DEMAIN DÈS L’AUBE at the 2009 festival.
