The movie is based on the novel of the same name by Swiss writer Jacques Chessex. In a small Swiss village in 1942, a cabal of Nazi sympathizers select a Jewish scapegoat to kill. The then 8-year-old witness of the events grows into a 70-year-old writer (Jacques Chessex), whose life was changed forever by what he saw. This sensitive topic has been chosen in view of Switzerland’s current presidency over the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance, an intergovernmental organization that aims to strengthen Holocaust education, research and remembrance worldwide.
