In 1932, as the world slowly inches towards the disaster of WWII, Jo meets Oscar, a young Slovak communist. They fall in love and get married, held together by a shared belief in a communist utopia. However, when Oscar is wrongly thrown in prison by his fellow party members after the war, Jo’s socialist dream rapidly turns into a nightmare. Fighting prejudice and danger on all sides, Jo manages to save her family through unbelievable feats of resourcefulness and resilience, surviving in the face of a regime intent on destroying not only their lives, but their very identities.
