Courtey of X-Filme Verleih

Sam Garbarski's period drama stars Moritz Bleibtreu as a Jewish Holocaust survivor looking to strike it rich in post-war Germany.

The experience of Jewish people in Germany after the Holocaust is the backdrop for the latest feature from director Sam Garbarski (Irina Palm).

Bye Bye Germany stars Moritz Bleibtreu (Run Lola Run, Woman in Gold) as David, a Jewish Holocaust survivor who starts up a linen business with other former concentration camp inmates, exploiting the guilt of their German customers to raise money to emigrate to America.

But U.S. officer Sara Simon (Antje Traue) is asking uncomfortable questions about David's wartime past, even suggesting he may have been a Nazi collaborator.

Bye Bye Germany will have its world premiere as a special screening on Feb. 10 at the Berlin Film Festival. X-Verleih is releasing the film in Germany on April 6. The Match Factory is handling international sales.
