It is 1939, and Hitler’s assault has begun. Though much of the world is ignoring the rising threat, Evelyn and Leonard Kirsch suspect that the menace is real. This ordinary American couple makes an extraordinary 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 no less than life and death. A suspenseful story that will bring you to the edge of your seat. 

“Thoughtful and heartfelt… culminates in an emotional, beautifully orchestrated sequence.” -- Atlanta Journal-Constitution
