As a teenager in Nazi Germany, Jutta is shocked to discover she is Jewish. She joins the German resistance and meets Helmuth, an injured soldier. The two become sweethearts and soon co-conspirators in the final plot to assassinate Hitler.

Surviving Hitler: A Love Story is a harrowing tale of war, resistance, and survival. At the center of the documentary is a love story for the ages, with original 8mm footage (shot by Helmuth).
