Shifting the Blame / Lars-Gunnar Lotz

Ben is given the unique chance of a new beginning in the idyllic “Waldhaus”. As one of seven juvenile offenders, he will adopt social skills and experience security in a family-like community. But when he meets his housemother Eva, he is shocked: She is one of his victims! His brutal assault on her was never solved.
