Summary Maria, a rising theater star in Nazi Germany, is in love with Mark, a Jewish actor. She accepts her dream job at a theater in Munich, while Mark is banned from performing-except at the Jewish Kulturbund Theatre in Berlin. Maria discovers she is unable to live without Mark, but the Nazi Nuremberg Laws strictly forbid their relationship. So that they can be together, Maria decides to fake her own suicide and assume a Jewish identity. The film is based on based on the novel An Arrangement with Death, by Hedda Zinner.
