In 1942, the Netherlands, a Nazi-occupied country, has become a place where Jews are being captured and murdered by the Nazis. Otto Frank (Max von Sydow) and his family go into hiding in the office building of his company, Opekta, assisted by his Christian friends and co-workers: Victor Kugler, Johannes Kleiman, Miep Santrouschitz-Gies and Bep Voskuijl. During this uncomfortable time in hiding, Otto's teenage daughter, Anne Frank (Diana Davila), describes in her diary the unbearable circumstances of life inside the "annex", as well as the injustices occurring in the world outside.
