A Heros Welcome

Original Title: Nacht vor Augen


Twenty-five-year-old David returns from a Bundeswehr mission in Afghanistan to his home village in the Black Forest. His girlfriend Kirsten and his mother welcome him warmly and his shy eight-year-old brother is full of admiration for him. But David is close-mouthed, brusque, and not the same man he was before the mission. Shortly after his return, the Bundeswehr informally honours him for supposed heroism. He is said to have shot an Afghan assassin in self-defence, thereby saving the lives of his whole unit. David returns to his old job as a paramedic and lives with Kirsten. But he can’t sleep at night. Nightmares of Afghanistan plague him. David’s life gradually spirals out of control.
