THE FINAL SOLUTION

THE FINAL SOLUTION
By Rutger Oosterhoff

GENRE: War, Drama
LOGLINE:

After an SS officer's family accidentally is sent to a Nazi death camp he must save them before the camp commandant dismantles the camp and kills all inmates.

SYNOPSIS:

PITCH

My dear audience,

My story is about --

(Act one)

A happy officers family living in Berlin. Elenore Brandt, a loving mother; Baldewin Brandt, because of his duty to the reich, is ashamed he 's not home often enough, to take care of his family;

Little Berrin (7yrs) who looks up to his dare devil brother Alvie (11 yrs) who is the world for him.

Nazi harmony! --

Until this little hiccup.

Imagine the irony of an SS officers wife and her two young sons wanting to take the train to Posen, Polen to attend her husband’s promotion party becoming Obersturmbahnfurher, but accidentally taking the train to Treblinka.

After an SS officer's family accidentally is sent to a Nazi death camp he must save them before the camp commandant dismantles the camp and kills all inmates.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(Act two)

While technicians ask themselves “what to do with the uninvited Nazi guests” our SS officer will go straight into Hell to save his family from the gas chambers.

As a doomed spirit he has to slowly reinvent himself to gain the trust of his imates and reunite with his family.

All in a surreal setting of the dying days of Treblinka. It's the Nazi version of The Matrix ; it's all around you, you little striped SS-officer and family father, it's everywhere;

While the Technicians visit their privat zoo... and watch the giraffes, in

CAMP 2: the extermination part of the whole camp --

-- you and your fellow inmates see countless families being slaughterd in record times;

-- your wife, who lives in the German officers CAMP 3, tries to survive as the camp commandant's typist and love interest,

and while desperate searching for the rest of her family, she does not know

-- that her youngest son Berrin already has been "threated" in the "Hospital" ,

-- hardening her oldest son Alvie in CAMP 1 - the working camp - far beyond his years. Telling his fellow inmates "his whole family is dead and he has nothing more to lose" -- enabling him to join the resistance that plans an escape.

(Act three)

And not far from Judgment Day --

On Sundays

this son sees übermensch dance with untermench to keep the working moral high --

leading to the main event: a boxing match the whole camp enjoys...

- INMATE!-

it's the world that's been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth,

you and the last of your comrates are soon to be exterminated.

So Baldewin, Elenore and Alvie --

UNITE, FIGHT and ESCAPE and tell the world what happened in this Hellhole;

So that in present times --YOU -- the audience --

after seeing the Final Solution, visit your shrink and deeply ashamed ask her: "why oh why did I root for this Nazi family to survive a deathcamp?"
