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. The girls continue to meet, even though it's forbidden, and, when life becomes unbearable for Jews in Vienna, Lise helps Inge and her family escape to the United States.
