"We made love. We were real. We were human. We made love."

In the rising darkness of Nazi Germany, Bent tells the story of Max, a gay man living a carefree life in Berlin. When violence erupts and his world crumbles, Max is forced to make a desperate choice. As he enters a concentration camp and meets fellow prisoner Horst, a brutal reality for the two men unfolds. Bent explores themes of survival, love, and the fight for humanity in the depths of depravity.
