Movie Details

It is 1943, in Warsaw, 5703 in the Jewish calendar, and the final destruction of the Jews of the Warsaw ghetto is imminent. Two young survivors are designated to escape and tell the story of those left behind. They escape, bearing photos and documents, via the sewers into the rest of Warsaw and make their way to what should have been a "safe" apartment, only to find a non-Jew in residence. Fortunately, she is inclined to be helpful, especially to the frightened young man. The young woman escapee is not as ready to trust this unexpectedly helpful woman, and the three of them play a complicated game of trust and betrayal while the last of Warsaw's Jews are dying. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi
