The Film is presented by the JCC Chicago Jewish Film Festival. German with English subtitles - On the day Adolf Hitler comes to power, a German-Jewish family comes together for a family dinner. Most of them (like so many other Germans at that time) don´t take the Nazis seriously. When young Leah reveals her plans to emigrate from Berlin to Palestine, her family starts disputing. Her father can´t see any reason to leave Germany, the country of their ancestors and the country he risked his life for during the first World War. But when Michael, Leah´s younger brother, indicates that he actually is an ardent admirer of the national socialist movement, the family is on the brink of being torn apart.
