May 1968: Rolling Stones, bell-bottoms, mini-skirts, sexual revolution, protests against the Vietnam War… While Germany embarks on a new era of freedom, rebellious 14-year-old Wolfgang is confined to Freistatt, a foster home for difficult children. There he is to be 'educated' to become a decent boy.

Wolfgang puts up a determined resistance to the brutal working conditions and the perfidious education methods of his warders; he doesn’t allow them to get him down. But how long can he resist the system of violence and oppression without becoming a monster himself? Based on a true story, Sanctuary maps the relentless fight of a boy to save his humanity and dignity in the face of an oppressive system.
