"Geli and Uncle Alf" is divided into several "chapters" interweaving stories of freedom, innocence and love. Slowly drawn by a tender obsession, Angelika "Geli" Raubal finds herself confronted with a toxic dependency towards Adolf Hitler. The question will remain - might tragic consequence of history have been re-written had this relationship not derailed. Sadly, history will never know.
The Story of Geli is one that is very relevant today. Geli was a young girl, who was caught up in a toxic relationship and became victim to sexual violence. This is a common life lived too often in our society. What makes her story so unique is its further amplification by her relationship with the infamous Adolf Hitler.
