Charlotte Salomon is born into a family stricken by suicide and a country at war.
But there is something exceptional about her - she has a gift, a talent for painting. And she has a great love, for a brilliant, eccentric musician.
But just as she is coming into her own as an artist, death is coming to control her country.
The Nazis have come to power and, as a Jew in Berlin, Charlotte's life is narrowing, and she knows every second is precious. Inspiring, unflinching, terrible and hopeful, Charlotte is the heartbreaking true story of a life filled with curiosity, animated by genius and cut short by hatred.
