Inspired by real events and spanning three eras of German history, NEVER LOOK AWAY tells the story of a young art student, Kurt (Tom Schilling) who falls in love with fellow student, Ellie (Paula Beer). Ellie's father, Professor Seeband (Sebastian Koch), a famous doctor, is dismayed at his daughter's choice of boyfriend, and vows to destroy the relationship. What neither of them knows is that their lives are already connected through a terrible crime Seeband committed decades ago.

Director Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck (Best Foreign Language Film Oscar winner for THE LIVES OF OTHERS) once again plows the fertile soil of communist East Germany for this soul-stirring drama about an artist facing questions of artistic and moral integrity in the face of tyranny.
