Based on the Stephen King novella, this Bryan (Usual Suspects) Singer film has a teenage boy (Brad Renfro) fascinated by the discovery of a Nazi war criminal in his home town.
First the boy demands to be told everything about Nazis and the man is reluctant but after days and weeks of this boy's torturing him he starts to get flashbacks, in
other words he remembers everything that he had did and begins to love
He becomes what he used to be, a killer. The boy and the man meet nightly and talk but after a while the boy becomes weary of the man and their friendship becomes broken, many double-crosses and a few murders happen along the way but in the long run the man has trained a successor to his Nazi past.
