A young woman in Prague struggles to regain control of her life and finds the one true love

Twelve-year-old Ella learns the brutal truth about what it means to be German in post-1945 Czechoslovakia: Her father is beaten to death by the revolutionary guard, and her mother is forced to hide in a Czech village with Ella's baby brother.
