"Closed Season" is set in 1942 and tells the story of Fritz and Emma who are hiding Albert, a Jewish refugee, at their remote farm in the Black Forest. Since his marriage with Emma has remained childless, Fritz uses the situation to suggest an unorthodox arrangement: He asks Albert to sleep with his wife and conceive a child on his behalf.
The consequences are dramatic: Emma discovers her sexuality, Fritz cannot control his jealousy and Albert feels trapped between the two of them. Against the background of war, an unpredictable drama unfolds that turns offenders into victims and vice versa.
