Synopsis
“I saw him and my heart stood still.” 18-year-old Freya Deichmann meets Helmuth James von Moltke. He is the love of her life. It is a love which has to prove itself under the Third Reich. The story builds to a dramatic climax, wavering between hope and a final separation, when Helmuth is imprisoned. Every day could be their last. Their greatest happiness are their daily letters which are smuggled by the prison chaplain. It is a love in a time of resistance which does not even end with the execution of the loved one.
The letters bear unique witness to an era, heartpiercing glimpses into an extraordinary existential situation of life and death. The lovers' story is combined with previously undisclosed conversations with the then 90-year-old Freya in her house in Vermont (USA): “material of astonishing beauty, poetry and passion.”
