SNOWBLIND is set in the Black Forest in the ice-cold winter of 1946. Peter, a 16-year old blind boy, is trying to get out of Germany together with his father Heiner – a former SS officer. They carry the fatally wounded soldier Karl, who promised to guide them across the border to Switzerland. By the time they reach his family’s remote farmhouse, Karl has died and Peter and Heiner hope Karl’s father will fulfill his son’s promise. A snow storm forces them to stay at the farmhouse, causing highly sensitive dynamics between the contradicting characters, and sparking a chain of fateful events.
