Set in 1946 Frankfurt, Bye Bye Germany is a comedic drama about a defiant Holocaust survivor looking to strike it rich in postwar Frankfurt. Though haunted by his family’s murder, David Bermann is determined to eke out a living in his battle-scarred homeland. He recruits Jewish traveling salesmen to assist him in a shady scheme, selling overpriced linens door-to-door to guilt-ridden Germans. Meanwhile, he faces interrogation by a comely American military officer about his past as an alleged Nazi collaborator. This is an engaging salute to European Jews who chose to endure painful memories to reclaim their lives. Intriguing twists and turns.
