About The Film
Berlin, 1943. Upper-class widow Martha Liebermann could never have imagined having to leave her homeland at the age of 85. As a Jew, her only choice is to go abroad or wait to be deported to a concentration camp. The valuable paintings of her world-famous artist husband still give her protection—but for how much longer? Martha’s friends pressure her into an illegal sale to finance her escape, while the Gestapo set a trap for opponents of the regime. The situation escalates dramatically, and Martha doesn’t know who to trust as she demonstrates her own wisdom and greatness.
