With the Nazis fast at their heels, three Jews ran for their lives. "Back from the brink" follows the harrowing escapes of these three survivors, now in their 80's, who managed to cheat death through the compassion and bravery of ordinary people. The film employs stark re-enactments of the most critical moments in these individual's personal sagas. The documentary, and these three harrowing stories, is a tribute to both the courage of the human spirit and to the thousands of unmentioned individuals during the Second World war who unselfishly stepped forward to save a life.
