“It is September 1944 in Berlin. The Allies are bombing the city on a daily basis. Helmuth von Moltke is in prison awaiting trial and presumably execution for his opposition to the dictatorship. The Nazis are unaware that the prison chaplain is smuggling letters between Helmuth and his wife Freya. The two write almost daily sharing their fears, emotions and experiences until January 1945 brings the trial before the hanging judge, a death sentence and execution. The letters are kept private until Freya’s death in 2010 and are now available in English.”
