Synopsis

Patagonia, 1960. A German doctor becomes the first guest at a hotel that an Argentinean family have just inherited. Eva and Enzo welcome the doctor into their home and entrust their young daughter, Lilith, to his care. What the family don’t know is that they are harbouring one of the most dangerous criminals in the world—the former Nazi officer Josef Mengele, known as the “Angel of Death”. Inspired by true events, The German Doctor is an unsettling, enthralling thriller.
