1942: Gilles, a young Belgian man, is arrested by the SS and sent to a concentration camp, where he avoids execution by convincing the guards he’s Persian—not Jewish. But then, he’s tasked with teaching Persian to the officer in charge of the camp’s kitchen, who dreams of opening a restaurant in Iran once the war is over. To survive, Gilles invents a language to teach the eager German. When the two men’s unusual relationship begins to incite jealousy and suspicion, Gilles becomes acutely aware that one false move could expose him. Three-time Oscar-nominated director Vadim Perelman (House of Sand and Fog) deftly directs this gripping period drama that balances the horrors of the Shoah with the human need to survive.
