The Baker's Daughter – Braving Evil in WW II Berlin
In Berlin during WW II, shy, seventeen-year-old Liddy is challenged to keep the family bakery afloat. When her carelessness lands boyfriend Marek in the hands of Nazi officer Keppler, she doubts her own worthiness for God’s love. But inspired by Bonhoeffer, whose letters her father smuggled from prison, and Kolbe, who had given his life to save another prisoner, Liddy courageously confronts Keppler. Her Christian arguments, however, go for naught. Not until she actually lives out her faith does Keppler become so awestruck that he re-connects with his God. During a bombing, Liddy demonstrates the very unconditional love she once so questioned. The redeemed Keppler helps to bring about the survival of the bakery in a most unusual way.
