“I love you. What’s wrong with that?” Max and Rudy are sent to Dachau concentration camp. Their crime: being gay. Set in Nazi Germany during and after the Night of the Long Knives, Bent follows the life of Max, a young gay man, and his experience at Dachau. He meets Horst, another gay man, in the camp, and their friendship develops during their conversations moving rocks - a punishment intended to drive them mad. Based on the real experiences of homosexuals during World War II, Bent explores an important story that questions the meaning loyalty, friendship, sex and love in a place that seems to lack all four.
