Labyrinth of Peace
February 5 – February 27
(6) 50-minute episodes
War is over. Switzerland, the neutral small country at the heart of Europe was all but spared. In this epic six-part mini-series, Klara, her fiancé, Johann, and his brother Egon are all looking brightly into the future. While Klara tries to mend the wounds of war by caring for displaced Holocaust survivors, Johann who works for her industrialist father, hopes to save and modernize his father-in-law’s textile company. Just home from military service, Egon takes his first steps in the Attorney General’s office. His mission: to hunt down escaped Nazis. All three of them soon realize the façade of peace is bought with the blood and victims of the war. Johann’s professional ambitions bring him closer to those who committed unspeakable war crimes. Klara risks her marriage while growing ever closer to Herschel, one of the survivors. Egon finds himself caught in a system that willingly turns a blind eye towards war criminals for the sake of profit, while his sanity hangs in the balance. With memorable performances, Labyrinth of Peace is a compelling portrait of an industrial family dynasty, inspired by true yet little-known events in post-WWII “neutral” Switzerland.
