They say, "Love conquers all." Or at least that's what Jack Polak thought while struggling for survival in a Nazi concentration camp. Jack, his wife Manja and his new love, Ina, all end up living in the same barracks. When Jack's wife objects to the relationship, in spite of their unhappy marriage, Jack and Ina resort to writing secret love letters, which gives them the strength to survive. Academy Award-nominee Michele Ohayon (Colors Straight Up, 1997) tells this daring tale of unusual love, war and the human condition.
