    • Synopsis
    • Amid War, Destinies Are Found and Lost
      Paris, 1937. Andras Lévi, a Hungarian architecture student, arrives from Budapest with a scholarship, a single suitcase, and a mysterious letter he promised to deliver. But when he falls into a passionate relationship with the letter's recipient - Claire Morgenstern, a Hungarian émigré with a shadowy past and a decade older than him - he becomes privy to a secret that will alter the course of his and his family’s history. Meanwhile, as his elder brother takes up medical studies in Italy and his younger brother leaves school for the stage, Europe’s unfolding tragedy sends each of their lives into terrifying uncertainty as Europe erupts in a cataclysm of war. Two families bound by destiny are tossed by the winds of war and destruction from 1937 until 1945, from 1956 and beyond, when the surviving family members are able to flee Communist Hungary for freedom and a new life in America.
      THE INVISIBLE BRIDGE is a grand love story set against the backdrop of Paris, Budapest ( „Paris of the East“) and Brooklyn, an epic tale of three brothers whose lives are ravaged by war, and the chronicle of one family’s struggle against the forces that threaten to destroy it. The ‘Invisible Bridge’ is the universal bond that holds people together in the face of unspeakable difficulties and from which we find the collective strength to rise above atrocity. It is made up of the common values of respect, dignity and goodwill. A sweeping story that shows the true human foundation: our spirit and enduring love.
