Summary

Moloch

An ominous fortress high above the clouds ... A woman alone prances in the nude on its majestic terraces. She knows she is under surveillance, and waves randomly to spying telescopic eyes. ...Still restless, she passes time in the Fuehrer′s study. She fondles his belongings and tries to amuse herself to his preferred music.

When her beloved "Adi" finally arrives, there is no romantic scene of tender embraces. Eva is greeted as a mere member of his summer household staff. At least the isolated retreat′s monotonous calm, which Eva must endure day after day, is broken by the Fuehrer and his entourage - right-hand man Martin Bormann and propaganda specialist Joseph Goebbels with doting wife Magda at his side. Everything seems in order for a reposing 24 hours of table talk and strolls amidst the dramatic views of the Bavarian Alps. Bormann has made it clear that there should be no talk of war. Even if it is the spring of 1942.

The confusions of a woman caught up in the complexities of a man incapable of human intimacy have made Eva as volcanic as her desired. Her longing cannot compete with his responsibility to the Reich. Her loyalty can no longer tolerate his obsessional ranting nor his hypochondriac complaints. She alone can scrutinize the monster now feared by all. For hers is the only voice that dares contradict the Fuehrer ...
