Few know the story of the Warsaw Ghetto and the Polish Resistance ... Even fewer know the stories of the children caught in it ... She closed her eyes and listened to the forbidden Chopin nocturne ... its magic hung in the air. It is Warsaw, 1939, and Elz'unia is an indulged teenager who longs for a heroic life filled with romance. But the outbreak of war shatters all her dreams. As bombs fall, she meets Adam, a taciturn airman whose fate becomes entwined with hers. In despair over the occupation, Adam joins the Polish resistance, then flies bombers for the RAF. Forced into the Warsaw Ghetto, Elz'unia learns that even children must create their own rules to survive. When the Ghetto defies the invaders, and later the entire city of Warsaw rises up, Elz'unia finds strength in ways she never imagined. NOCtURNE is a powerful and inspiring testament to resilience and courage in the face of cruelty and betrayal.
