In 1940 Berlin, two Jewish families come together as the Nazi grip tightens. Hanni, mother of 12-year-old Lea, goes to the daughter of a renowned rabbi and asks her to create a female golem to guard her daughter in her stead. Ava the golem and Lea head to Paris, as does Ettie, the rabbi’s daughter. Their paths are destined to cross as Ettie becomes a resistance fighter and Ava leads Lea away from Paris to keep her safe. This is a meditation on resistance, and love, in the face of great evil and despair.
