Based on a true story, a young American man attempts to rescue a Jewish family out of Berlin in 1939. LEGACY unravels as his daughter unearths the story of her father’s cowardice and courage. As she discovers his long-held secrets, we learn that her father is risking his life to save a Jewish photojournalist who is collecting evidence of mounting nationalism, racism and anti-Semitism. This suspenseful tale of escape intersects with the present day true stories of teen refugees.
