    • Synopsis
    • This biographical film is based on an inspiring true story of Lea and Darija, two 13-year-old girls who were immensely popular and talented dancing and acting stars in Zagreb on the eve of World War II. Selling out theatre venues, they were praised in the most superb headlines by the Croatian and European press and were filmed by Parisian Pathe and Berlin’s UFA…
      During the Nazi persecution of Jews and the later German nationals’ flight from communists, a dramatic friendship was born through dance, entertainment, but also anxiety. This led towards an unexpected end.
