Adam’s Apples (Denmark, 2005)
Rated R Dir: Anders Thomas Jensen
Sentenced to community service at a small, countryside church, Adam, a middle-aged neo-Nazi, is warmly welcomed by the cheerful vicar, Ivan. Although Adam is crude, full of hostility, and beyond redemption, Ivan encourages him to choose a goal that will occupy his time there. When Adam dismissively tells the vicar that he will bake an apple pie, Ivan assigns him the task of nurturing the church's lone apple tree.

Marji refusing to remain silent at this injustice is sent to Vienna to study for a better life.
