1941, the Warsaw ghetto. Filip, a young Polish Jew, and  his beloved Sara are rehearsing to perform in a cabaret to earn a living. During the premiere, a shootout takes place. Sara and Philip’s relatives sitting in the audience are killed. Two years later, the man works as a waiter in a restaurant of an exclusive hotel in Frankfurt. Posing as French, in the heart of Nazi Germany, he makes the most of the world and nothing can stop him. With the tragic events occurring one by one, Filip’s carefully built Frankfurt world collapses like a house of cards.
