Synopsis

1943: Holland is under Nazi occupation. In Amsterdam, Jack, an unassuming accountant, first meets Ina at a birthday party- a 20-year-old beauty from a wealthy diamond manufacturing family who instantly steals his heart. But Jack's pursuit of love will be complicated; he is poor and married to Manja, a flirtatious and mercurial spouse. When the Jews are deported, husband, wife and lover find themselves at the same concentration camp and living in the same barracks. 

When Jack's wife objects to the relationship in spite of their unhappy marriage, Jack and Ina resort to writing secret love letters, which sustain them throughout the horrendous circumstances of the war. This compelling documentary by Academy Award-nominee Michele Ohayon, explores how love survives the horror of the Holocaust. [adult content, subtitles]
