This was a GREAT made for TV movie! The actors were just great. Meredith Henderson who played Anna Schiller the refuge. I've seen her in Shirley Holmes....AND SHE DOES NOT HAVE THAT ACCENT! it was great. I don't know how to explain the story and how amazing it was it's just something you have to see for yourself!
