The Story

"A romantic fresco that brings together history and fiction." - Ciné Dweller

France, 1940. Defying logic, Janot Reichenbach, a wealthy Jewish woman, decides to not flee the German-occupied country with her husband and son. Instead, she joins socialist politician and three-time Prime Minister Léon Blum, with whom she fell madly in love when she was only sixteen but kept apart from all these years, in the free zone. Determined to stay with Blum at all costs and willing to sacrifice all she has for love, she follows him as he is moved from France to Buchenwald, where they are both imprisoned.

Based on the remarkable true story.
