Inspired by actual events Remembrance depicts a remarkable love story that blossomed amidst the terror of a German concentration camp in Poland 1944. In a daring escape Tomasz a young Polish political prisoner rescues his Jewish fiancee Hannah whom he meets while imprisoned. With the Nazis in pursuit and determined to deter future escapees Hannah and Tomasz survive the initial chase and overcome all odds to make their way into hiding. Chaos ensues after Tomasz decides to rejoin the Polish resistance and find his brother. His role in the Resistance offer clues as to why Tomasz was imprisoned. He had promised to return for his fiancee but Hannah is forced to flee once again before Tomasz is able to come back for her. They are torn apart and each becomes convinced that the other is lost. More than thirty years later in New York City the happily married Hannah believes to have seen her Tomasz in an interview on TV and begins to search for him. Uncovering years of tormenting memories Hannah stumbles upon a revelation that will set her soul free. In her notes script writer Pamela Katz refers to Israeli author David Grossman's haunting question "What right do I have to touch the sore?" In a deep effort to avoid sentimentality and offensive cliches Remembrance is a story constructed to not only accomplish this but to deliver a stunning narrative that sensitively illuminates heroic events in such a dark time and place.
