In 1944, blonde Jewess Hadassah Benjamin—hiding behind the false identity of Stella Muller—is pressed into service at a transit camp by SS-Kommandant Colonel Aric von Schmidt. Unable to stand by as her people are sent to Auschwitz, Stella bravely appeals to her employer on the prisoners’ behalf. She soon discovers that Aric is a man of hidden sympathies and finds herself battling an attraction to a man she should despise. When her true heritage is revealed, Stella’s life hangs in the balance.
