LEGACY by Shauna Kanter

Written & Directed by Shauna Kanter

Berlin 1939 & America Today.

Legacy is based on the true story of a young American who rescues a Jewish photo journalist and her children out of Germany. This suspenseful escape is pierced by stories of today’s refugees.

Legacy reminds us that one person can always make a difference.
