In 1930s Vienna, Inge Dourenvald (Jenny Lewis) is from a Jewish family, and her best friend, Lise Mueller (Kamie Harper), is a Christian -- a relationship that's frowned upon in the context of growing anti-Semitism. Their friendship is further imperiled by the fact that Lise's father and brother are devoted to the Nazi cause.
