What is it about?
A little girl enters a shop to buy a necklace for her mother, there she will meet a very nice gentleman who will show her various necklaces, but her attention will be struck by one in particular.
Reluctantly, the owner of the shop will not be able to sell her that necklace that she likes so much and will explain why, starting to tell her the story of her mother Anastasia and her father Thomas.
The film develops in South Tyrol, during the period of the Second World War.
The lives of a Jewish girl - Anastasia - and a circus boy - Thomas - cross when the small German circus of the Freit family arrives in the village. The two soon fall in love, but it will be a love full of sacrifices, due to the enactment of the racial laws. Because of these Anastasia is forced to hide in the circus, but even here the situation is not easy: the son of the circus director - Artur - tries in every way to get her thrown out.
Following a series of unfortunate events, Anastasia is forced first to make herself unrecognizable, then to escape from the circus.
The story continues with the story of the gentleman of the shop, between breathtaking scenes and twists, seeing ups and downs in the pursuit of an impossible love between Thomas and Anastasia.
