Departing Hamburg in high spirits, 937 Jewish Germans have been offered safe haven in Havana, Cuba, in 1939. The passengers are looking forward to their new life. However, the whole voyage is actually a Nazi propaganda scheme and the passengers are never really intended to be allowed ashore once they reach their destination. After weeks of unsuccessful pleas they are forced to return back to Europe. Based on the tragic 1939 voyage of the SS St. Louis.

Well worth viewing - A story about Jews trying to escape Europe pre-war.

Excellent movie! Star-studded cast. Based on a true story. A sad comment on history that no one was willing to take the Jewish people that were trying to escape from Germany.
