Storyline

Germany 1944: 15-year old Leyna (Amandla Stenberg), daughter of a white German mother and a black father, lives in fear due to the color of her skin. When she meets Lutz (George MacKay), the son of a prominent SS officer and a member of the Hitler Youth - mandatory for all Aryan boys since 1936 - the two fall helplessly in love, putting both their lives at risk. An original coming of age story through the eyes of a bi-racial teen as she witnesses the persecution of Jews and those deemed 'non-pure'. Written by https://teaser-trailer.com

A brilliant movie. A story that needed to be told. Not offensive.
15 September 2018 | by verawharrisSee all my reviews

The acting is superb. A tender story set during a terrible time.

I have read accounts and seen pictures from this period but this perspective has never been told.

This movie needed to made to educate people about the plight of biracial children in Nazi Germany.

Forget the critics. An excellent movie; a must see!
