In February 1939, Waitstill and Martha Sharp (grandparents of the filmmaker) journeyed to Europe on a dangerous mission to rescue Jews, refugees, and dissidents from Nazi persecution. What drove this young Unitarian minister and his wife to leave a comfortable life in suburban Boston and put the well-being of strangers before themselves and their family? The film features memoirs of the Sharps, interviews with refugees rescued as children who were taken to America by Martha Sharp, and other interviews with family members.
