When World War II breaks out, Edith and Oskar Eberhardt
move their family—their daughter, Marina; son-in-law,
Franz; and their granddaughters—out of Berlin to the quiet
town of Blumental, near Switzerland. A member of the
Fuhrer’s cabinet, Oskar is gone most of the time, and
Franz begins fighting in the war, so the women of the
house are left to their quiet lives in the village.
But life in Blumental isn’t as idyllic as it appears. An
egotistical Nazi captain terrorizes the citizens he’s
assigned to protect. Neighbors spy on each other. Some
mysteriously disappear. Marina has a lover who also has
close ties to her family and the government. Thinking none
of them share her hatred of the Reich, she joins a
Protestant priest smuggling Jewish refugees over the
nearby Swiss border. The latest “package” is two Polish
girls, and against her better judgment, Marina finds she
must hide them in the Eberhardt’s cellar. Everything is
set to go smoothly until Oskar comes home with the news
that the Führer will be visiting the area for a concert,
and he will be making a house call on the Eberhardts.
