Description: In the darkest days of the Cold War, a Hungarian family sacrifices wealth and privilege to escape to the West and gain freedom from Communist repression. Amid the chaos of their late-night border crossing, their youngest child is left behind. They go on to build a new life in America, while in the old country a peasant family raises Suzanne as if she were their own. But Suzanne's true mother never stops fighting to bring her to America. After five years of persistence she wins her fight. Suzanne comes to America; greeted by people she's never met who say they are her parents. As Suzanne grows up to be a rebellious teenager, she must deal directly with the mystery of her past. Only by going back to Hungary, by crossing the border once again, on her own terms, is she able to find herself and to find her true home.
