Fact-based account of a forgotten incident of heroism in WWII Germany. When remaining Jews of Berlin are rounded up for deportation to death camps in 1943, those married to non-Jewish women, or children of such couples are diverted to temporary prison on Rosenstrasse ("Street of Roses"). Many of the detainees' wives gather outside prison to show support to families inside and demand their release. After several days of quiet courageous protest, prisoners were released and saved from gas chambers. Film tells this story through families directly involved in event. Moving and well-acted retelling of lost piece of history.
