It is 1941 and Hitler's Third Reich is approaching the apex of its European dominance. When a naive German teenager, Anna Gunter, finds herself about to become an unwed mother, she is thrust into Heinrich Himmler's fanatical Lebensborn program. Lebensborn, meaning "the fountain of life," is an organization specifically designed to facilitate the breeding of Aryan children at the expense of Jews, homosexuals, disabled and other "undesirables." By the time Anna comes to realize the extent of the Nazi's twisted scheme, she is heavy with child and a virtual prisoner in the French-occupied Chateau where she is guarded by SS soldiers. Her own safety and that of her child are further jeopardized when SS Kapitan Klaus von Elken and his mistress, the calculating Lebensborn Administrator Elsbeth Schroeder, act in collusion to steal the baby for their own Nationalist purposes.
