BACK TO YOUR ARMS
On the eve of World War II, a young woman was taken by her mother to the United States, and was separated from her father as he was trapped in Soviet occupied Lithuania. It’s now 1961 and she has come to West Berlin for a chance to see her father, who is held captive by KGB agents. Back To Your Arms is thrilling and poignant. In this moment in time before the Berlin Wall was erected, her life is in danger at every step.
