Berlin, 1943: The Nazi regime has officially declared the Reich's capital "judenrein", but some Jews have managed to become invisible to the authorities. It is mostly luck and their youthful recklessness that save them from the Gestapo's dreaded grasp, while only a few confidants know about their true identity. Cioma Schönhaus secretly forges passports to save the lives of dozens of others. Hanny Lévy bleaches her hair in order to be able to walk along the street as an apparent Aryan. Eugen Friede distributes leaflets at night and lives with a German family during the day, pretending to be a member of the Hitler Youth. And finally, there is Ruth Gumpel, disguised as a war widow, serving black market delicacies to Nazi officers. They are all fighting for a life of freedom without really being free....
THE INVISIBLES is an extraordinary drama, based on interviews with witnesses, conducted by director Claus Räfle and co-writer Alejandra López. They tell the highly emotional story of these courageous heroes and thus devote themselves to a largely unknown chapter of the Jewish resistance.
