Synopsis

After the deaths of their parents, the inseparable twin sisters Anna and Lotte Bamberg are crudely separated at the age of six. Anna remains in Germany, growing up in relatively harsh circumstances on the farm of her uncle Heinrich and his wife Martha. The sickly Lotte is given a loving home in the Netherlands by her distant relations, the Rockanjes. In the years following their separation, the girls desperately try to get in touch with each other. At last, a reunion follows on the brink of the Second World War. Although they are glad to be reunited at last, they both feel they've drifted apart.
