North American Premiere

In the Spring of 1944, seven Soviet soldiers are captured by the Germans in Nazi-occupied Poland, imprisoned naked and without possessions in the empty basement of a monastery - then abandoned by their captors. Stripped of their uniforms and all ties to the world before, the survivors of Colonel Petrov’s Special Reserve Forces abandon and ultimately redefine their concepts of order, society, and human nature. As soldiers of a post-revolutionary Russia how do they reconcile rank, faith, dignity and humanity in such extraordinary circumstances? Powerful, thought-provoking and truly haunting, The Curing Room is a taut, gritty and intense thriller that absolutely refuses to flinch. To up the ante, The Curing Room is inspired by a true story.
