Everything She Left Behind

Secrets from the past are just waiting to be uncovered.

Austria, 1945. 19-year-old Klara and her family are banished to the harsh conditions of a Nazi labor camp. Strong-willed and resilient, Klara refuses to give up hope and does everything in her power to survive.

Finally, the camp is released and Klara is free – but there are still hardships to overcome. Upon returning home to Hungary with her family, they discover that the home they left behind is no longer theirs. Devastated, Klara decides to leave her family and sets off on her own, to her new destination – first to Italy then the land of Israel. Her path will be wrought with challenges, but also with love, and the hope of a family of her own.

Years later, the delivery of a mysterious letter sets into motion an unexpected series of events in the life of Alice, Klara’s granddaughter. She embarks on a journey in pursuit of secrets from the past, secrets which when uncovered, might just help her decide her own path in life.
