Summer of '44 - The Lost Generation (2017)

A young lad struggling with Caesar in Latin – a normal occurrence, were he not on the verge of the final medical check-up before being drafted into the Waffen-SS in the summer of 1944. Five boys ogle a pretty blonde girl in the pool, two of them try to impress her by jumping off the high tower: Boys will be boys, even as catastrophe looms. A year later, only three of them return home to a world that has thrown them to the dogs of war and now won't let them back in the door. Friedemann Fromm adapted Oliver Storz's autobiographical novel about surviving in brutal times.
