    • Synopsis
    • ‘In My Fathers Garden’ tells the story of Hans and Margie– sweethearts since school. Hans grows up in a strict religious environment, with a brutal father. At a young age, he runs away from home and studies horticulture. After World War 2, he starts a nursery in a small village. At first, he and Margie enjoy a happy family life and boundless love for one another. One afternoon, Hans meets Josef Mieras who talks to him about god. At first, Hans is not interested. But after he has an ominous dream about his dead father, he falls increasingly under Miera’s spell. Hans draws deeper and deeper into his faith – a faith that will now determine the course of his life, and his family. The rifts between Hans and his family becomes bigger and bigger, until Hans is completely in the grip of the religious sect.
