This is a powerful telling of the real life story of a wealthy Viennese Jewish lady forced to flee the Nazis.
Several decades later with the death of her sister, she finds some papers which sets her on the path of reclaiming the priceless Klint art works that once belonged to her family. In doing so she engages the grandson of another famous Vienese refugee and engages another generation in the 'David and Goliath' fight for justice that somehow history has rendered irrelevant.
I found this a very powerful watch and poignantly beautiful in the scene switches of present day Vienna triggering memories of her young life and her gripping escape from Nazis.
