This Beautiful Future

A romance involving a girl and a young Nazi soldier in Occupied France. It is August 1944, a critical point in World War II, but Elodie is smitten with Otto, and that overrides everything big and scary that the grown-ups have set in motion in the world. Otto is a Nazi, a member of the occupying force; Elodie pushes away her discomfort at that. She is too naïve to realize that her Jewish neighbors who were arrested will not be coming back, or that Otto — the kind of wide-eyed, easily led soldier who fanboys the strongman he calls “Mr. Hitler” — has shot local people dead.
