Synopsis: In 1966, a young student doing research in the National Library of France was confronted by an elderly gentleman who had overheard her name. Despite her polite denials, he insisted that she must be the daughter of the Resistance hories Jacques and Lotka de Prevaux. Curious about the strange episode, Aude Yung-de Prevaux recounted the story to her mother. To Aude’s amazement, her mother confirmed the old man’s account and, shockingly, admitted she was actually Aude’s aunt. Thus began an odyssey of discovery that uncovered not only Aude Yung-de Preveaux’s own hidden history, but also that of her tragic parents and their doomed love, one of the most haunting stories of the Second World War.
