In 1938 Berlin, aspiring filmmaker Bernard Hersch works at the UFA studios and dreams of one day directing the screenplay he and his wife are writing. But as a Jew in Hitler's Germany, Bernard faces increasing danger and discrimination, and is soon forced to accept deportation to Japan as his only hope. At the last minute, Bernard's wife is killed by the Nazis and he is rerouted to China. Heartbroken, he struggles through grief and vows to bring his wife's screenplay to life. A distinctive and humanistic take on World War Two from the largely undocumented Chinese perspective.
