After the Nazi occupation of Paris, a talented jeweler, Joseph Haffmann, fearing the worst, arranges for his family to flee the city and offers his employee François Mercier a chance to take over his store until the conflict subsides. But his own attempts to escape are thwarted, and Haffmann is forced to seek his assistant’s protection. It’s a risky proposition for both men, and one that Mercier’s wife Blanche is skeptical of. As the couple move in to the Haffmann home, the agreement turns into a Faustian bargain, one that will forever change the fate of all.
