As his legal wife, she will be allowed to leave Nazi Austria. The man promises to divorce her upon arrival. During their journey to Palestine he falls in love with her, despite her obvious lack of interest. Convinced that her love will grow with time, he imprisons her in his home. In a fit of rage, he rapes her. She escapes, learns she’s pregnant with his son, and raises him alone, in poverty. The boy proves to have an excellent business sense, and the owner of a large corporation takes him under his wing, only to discover that the two have a long history.
