Daisy (Claire Danes) is a smart and pretty teen who attends a prestigious private academy. Despite her privileged upbringing, Daisy struggles with her Jewish identity, especially when it becomes clear that there's an anti-Semitic streak at her school. While Daisy pines for her popular and handsome classmate, Ethan (Jude Law), she can only confide closely in Nana (Jeanne Moreau), her grandmother and a survivor of the Holocaust, who tells her granddaughter tales of her youth.
