It is 1939, and Hitler’s assault on Europe has begun. Though much of the
world has turned its back on the Jews of Europe, Evelyn and Leonard Kirsch
suspect that the menace is real. This ordinary American couple makes a bold
decision that could save the lives of many Jewish children and change the
course of history. But first, they must convince their estranged friends to
help. What begins as a night of cocktails and conversation becomes a tense
negotiation of politics, morality, and survival – and the stakes are life and death.
A suspenseful story that will bring you to the edge of your seat. Featuring
McLean Fletcher, Kimberly Gilbert, David Schlumpf, Alexander Strain and Erin Weaver.
