In April 1945, as the Allies celebrated victory, Germany was living under occupation. In the pretty village of Tannbach, first the Americans, then the Russians took control, literally dividing the village in two.
Line of Separation examines this little-told but fascinating moment in history through the stories of the people of Tannbach and how their lives were forever changed by historical events beyond their control.
The cast and production values are excellent, earning Line of Separation the prestigious Golden Nymph Award for Best Long Fiction at the 2016 Monte Carlo TV festival.
