The two become sweethearts and soon co-conspirators in the final plot to assassinate Hitler. At the center of this harrowing tale of war, resistance, and survival is a love story for the ages, with riveting narration by Jutta herself, original 8mm footage (shot by Helmuth) and, miraculously, a happy ending."
