Based on a true story, Rachel Steinn (Carice van Houten) is a Jewish woman living in German occupied Holland in the 40's. Her and her Jewish family members are promised a way out of the country by boat. They show up with all of their money and enter their names in the German's black book in order to get on board. But these men have other plans and rob and brutally kill them. Rachel escapes by diving into the water and wet and all alone must find a way to survive. She meets up with a resistance movement where she dies her hair blond to pass as a Dutch woman and blend in. She learns the language and when a German commander takes a fancy to her, she must learn how to play the role of her life. German with English subtitles.
