Gretchen Muller’s father gave his life to save Adolf Hitler and ever since she has grown up under the wing of her “Uncle Dolf” in the National Socialist Party. That is until one fateful evening when she meets Daniel Cohen, a Jewish reporter, and she can’t seem to stay away from him. She should hate Daniel but she finds herself attracted to him. She shouldn’t believe a word he says, yet she is drawn to his stories and finds herself questioning everything she has been brought up to believe.
