Based on an inspiring true story about two thirteen-year-old girls who, on the eve of World War II, were great dancing and acting stars in Zagreb. Selling out theatres, they were praised in headlines by the Croatian and European press and were filmed by Parisian Pathe and Berlin’s UFA. During the Nazi persecution of Jews, a dramatic friendship was born through entertainment, dance, but also anxiety and a tragic sense of inevitability.
