A buried secret and a lifetime of guilt born in the dark heart of Nazi Germany
England, 2001. Elizabeth has always suspected her mother habours a secret from her time as a young woman in Nazi Germany. But her mother, suffering from dementia, is lost to her now.
When Elizabeth stumbles across a Nazi certificate amongst her parent's paperwork, it forces her to question the very foundations of her 1950s childhood and her first love; a childhood, she now realises, was built on lies.
Elizabeth's quest to find the truth leads her to Germany where she's met with a wall of silence. She knows that beyond this wall, is the truth, a truth that exists deep within the dark and twisted soul of Hitler's Germany.
