A Jewish girl's story opens wounds from France's wartime past in this
drama from director Gilles Paquet-Brenner. Living in Paris while her
architect husband Bertrand (Frederic Pierrot) restores his family's
apartment block, writer Julia Jarmond (Kristin Scott Thomas) stumbles
across the wartime history of the block's original Jewish owners, who
were arrested by the Vichy government as part of the notorious Vel'
d'Hiv Roundup of 1942 and forced to sell their property. As the story
unfolds, Julia becomes increasingly haunted by the fate of ten-year-old
Sarah Starzynski (Melusine Mayance), who, after being detained, escapes
in a desperate attempt to return to the block where she has secretly
hidden her younger brother.
