Tv show concept & testimonial „We are up again“ (2012)
A German village, situated in the American Occupied Zone, in 1953. The long-time township priest dies of potassium cyanide poisoning. His successor, JOSEPH, believes: The old clergyman was murdered. When he starts to ask uncomfortable questions he encounters a wall of silence and rejection.

The “film noir” styled show tells about restoration and raise, of outrageous love, the corset of prudery, of identity and righteous faith and the search for truth in the young Federal Republic of Germany.
