Synopsis

Paris, 1940: The City of Lights under German occupation. Christian, son of a bank director, falls in love with the Jewish girl Judith. The young couple secretly plan to flee, but suddenly Judith disappears. Christian begins a frantic search.



Montreal, 1982: Shortly before his death, Lica Grunberg confesses to his daughter, Jacobina, that she has an older half-sister, Judith. Lica escaped the Nazis but lost all contact with his first-born daughter. Jacobina must promise her father to find the sister she never knew. But the search languishes for 25 years, until Jacobina is spurred on by her much younger friend Beatrice, a French diplomat experiencing a painful midlife crisis. At the Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C., they meet Gregoire. Not only does he make Beatrice's head turn, he also finds clues to Judith's whereabouts. Soon the two women discover a dark family secret, stretching over two continents and six decades. It will change their lives forever.



Inspired by a true story, a love story between a Jewish girl and a Christian boy, set against the backdrop of World War Two; for fans of THE TATTOOIST OF AUSCHWITZ
