FULL SYNOPSIS

Author [[Performer~P527862~Anne Michaels~annemichaels]]'s poetic novel comes to the screen courtesy of director [[Performer~P192897~Jeremy Podeswa~jeremypodeswa]] in this period drama concerning a Holocaust survivor who remains eternally haunted by the uncertain fate of his beloved sister. Athos ([[Performer~P376705~Rade Sherbedgia~radesherbedgia]]) is an archeologist conducting a dig in Nazi-occupied Poland. When Athos discovers a seven-year-old boy named Jakob (Robbie Kay) hiding near the work site, he smuggles the frightened boy back to Greece and promises to shelter him when the Nazis come knocking there as well. Having previously witnessed the brutal massacre of his family at the hands of [[Performer~P366810~Hitler~adolfhitler]]'s henchmen, Jakob longs to find out what fate befell his sister, Bella (Nina Dobrev) -- who wasn't executed with the majority of his other relatives but subsequently disappeared without a trace. After the war, Athos and Jakob emigrate to Toronto in hopes of starting a new life. But even after all these years, Jakob ([[Performer~P199938~Stephen Dillane~stephendillane]]) can't seem to shake the grief of losing his family and not knowing what ever became of Bella. Later, when Jakob marries the radiant Alex ([[Performer~P328443~Rosamund Pike~rosamundpike]]), the bright-eyed beauty does her best to illuminate the dark corners within her husband's soul. To maintain one's connection to ghosts requires a certain shunning of the living, however, and only when Jakob discovers the strength to let go of his painful past will he finally be able to move forward into the future. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
