| A Canadian reporter goes to Germany to cover a story of a Canadian writer about to be published. It all changes when the writer dies under suspicious circumstances.
Although the movie isn't absolutely amazing, it contains some very poignant and essential messages, specifically about (professional) writing. It also demonstrates some of the problems plaguing the publishing world. Most moving were the segments dealing with the story of the Rebber family, and how they epitomize the injustices suffered by wealthy German Jews during the second World War.

Many of the actors in this film are Canadian, as are the production crew (and companies). This movie lends itself to the expression and appreciation of many cultures, including German, Canadian, and the artistic worlds of writing/publishing and fine art.
