Synopsis:
Academy-award winner Ladislav Grosman’s 'The 17th Bride' is the story of Liza Elias (Lisa Hartman), a gorgeous young Jewish woman living in a small Czechoslovakian town during the Nazi occupation of World War II. Thirty years old and still single, independent Liza is bright, pretty, and filled with sexy fantasies about life after she meets the man of her dreams. During the day, she projects an image of confidence and security. But at night, she secretly models the white wedding gown she longs to wear when she finds her perfect man.
The Jewish community, forced by the Nazis to humiliatingly display the yellow Star of David is suddenly terrified by the rumor that all unmarried women over the age of 16 will be immediately sent to labor camps...or worse. To stave off this Nazi horror, Liza quickly consents to marry Petty (Barry Angel), the son of her father’s friend. Upon entering the town hall, they see 16 other couples using the same ruse to fend off this awful fate. The Nazis are relentless, and disavow the ceremony. The women are rounded up. The grinning, leering Nazis strip the women and brutally manhandle Liza and her friends before herding them away to the infamous death trains. In the pandemonium, Liza makes a break for safety as bullets whiz around her. Can she escape the filthy clutches of the Third Reich, or will she be forced into servicing the evil war machine with her body?
