The Story

A provocative drama, based on the true story of Stella Goldschlag who, from September 1943 until the end of the war, delivered hundreds of fellow Jews to the Gestapo, and post-war faced trial for her actions. As depicted in the best-selling book ‘Stella: One Woman’s True Tale of Evil, Betrayal, and Survival in Hitler’s Germany.

Stella, a young German Jew, grows up in Berlin during the rule of the Nazi regime. She dreams of a career as a jazz singer, but her dreams are curtailed when she is forced into hiding with her parents. Building a risky life and working with a passport forger, Stella learns to look out for herself.

Through a betrayal, Stella is caught and tortured by the Gestapo. She becomes a "catcher" to save herself and her parents from deportation to Auschwitz – a role that will force her to systematically betray other Jews and tragically move from a victim to a perpetrator.
