The Dressmaker’s Secret

About This Show

Nineteen-year-old Robi is eager to escape the oppression of Communist Romania to forge a new life in the West. The unexpected return of his mother’s estranged fiancé after a 20-year absence may hold a key to his freedom. However, when his mother reveals that Robi’s father was not killed in action as he’d believed but is either a Jewish teacher his mother hid during the war or the Hungarian soldier who persecuted him, Robi must decide whether to embrace his ancestry or run from it.
