The story of a Jewish family who escaped from Germany to Switzerland and then to America shortly before the outbreak of WWII. Almost penniless, the family is forced to share cramped quarters in a rooming house. There is little money for food, and Margo deprives herself to feed her children. With no choices available, Margo makes arrangements with the refugee agency to place her girls with different families. The separation of mother and daughters is made even more difficult when Margo falls ill with pneumonia and must be hospitalized. Finally, news arrives from America that Arthur has sent the last necessary forms so that the family can buy their boat tickets. The family is finally reunited in their new country.
