This is a story of the Resistance, a portrait of a young couple whose dreams were destroyed by the Nazi occupation and a daughter's personal quest for her patrimony. Annette Kahn moves back and forth between the drama of her parents' story and testimony from the Barbie trial. In late 1943 Robert Kahn was arrested by Klaus Barbie's militia, rescued by the Resistance, and finally recaptured. From prison, he arranged for the safety of his wife and children, but Jeanne Kahn would not leave Lyon without her husband. On August 11, 1944 she was sent to Auschwitz, an experience about which she never spoke.
