May, 1939. Captain Gustav Schroeder pilots the SS St. Louis, a luxury ocean liner, away from its home port in Hamburg, Germany. His goal: to deliver 937 Jewish refugees out of the hands of Nazism and into the safe port of Havana, Cuba. But when Cuba is the first of several countries to deny the refugees safe harbor, a vicious Nazi plot is exposed. This historical drama chronicles the perseverance of the St. Louis' passengers and their struggle to find freedom, safety, and even, love. A heartbreaking story of betrayal and hope in one of history's darkest times.
