In 1921, Fran oise Frenkel -- a Jewish woman from Poland -- fulfills a lifelong dream. She opens Berlin's first French-language bookshop, La Maison du Livre, attracting artists, diplomats, celebrities, and poets. The shop soon becomes a haven for intellectual exchange as Nazi ideology begins to poison the culturally rich city. But as the occupation intensifies and politics darken, Frenkel's bookshop is frequently visited by police officers who confiscate her beloved books.
