This film is based on the true story of Jewish refugees–including countess Denise (Faye Dunaway) and her husband Professor Egon Kreisler (Oscar Werner) and disbarred attorney Carl Rosen (Sam Wanamaker), his wife Lili (Lee Grant), and daughter Anna (Lynne Frederick). In 1939, they and other passengers sail from Europe looking for freedom. Their ship is not allowed to dock in ports in the Western Hemisphere, and the voyage proves fruitless when they are forced to return to Germany. Lee Grant received an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress.
