clientuploads/FilmFest/FilmFest2013/ClosedSeason.jpgSuspense and intrigue infuse the thrilling tale of Albert who flees to Switzerland to escape Nazi persecution, and is given shelter by villagers Fritz and Emma. Unable to conceive, the impotent farmer proposes that Albert father a child with his wife, Emma. At first repelled by the idea, Emma eventually relents, only to find herself falling for the young stranger. A maze of jealousy and betrayal erupts, while frequent visits by a Nazi patrolman add another layer of suspense.
