In the spring of 1945, a train deporting hundreds of Jewish prisoners gets stranded near a small German village occupied by the Red Army. Stuck with each other and in an environment of deep mistrust, desperation and revenge, an unexpected friendship emerges between Russian sniper Vera, village girl Winnie, and Jewish-Dutch woman Simone.
Journalist Tom Teicholz will be joined in conversation by Jordanna Gessler, Vice President of Education and Exhibits at Holocaust Museum LA, and Rabbi Susan Nanus from Wilshire Boulevard Temple, who was previously an acclaimed playwright and film/television writer.
All registered guests will receive a link to view the film 72 hours before the live online panel discussion, which will take place at the scheduled time. It is recommended to register at least three days before the event.
