Based on Georgia Hunter’s novel, which tells the story of her Polish and Jewish ancestors who endured World War II and The Holocaust, “We Were the Lucky Ones” follows the Kurc family as different branches scatter far and wide across Europe during the tragic events brought on by Adolf Hitler.

In 1939, Sol (Lior Ashkenazi) and Nechuma Kurc (Robin Weigert) ran their tailor shop and eagerly awaited their five children — Genek (Henry Lloyd Hughes), Mila (Hadas Yaron), Jakob (Amit Rahav), Addy (Logan Lerman) and Halina (Joey King) — to return home for Passover. Signs of the impending war had begun to show, but the family, some of whom had survived World War II, wasn’t worried. 

As Nazi forces conquered Poland and launched the second world war, the Kurc children spread out through various parts of the country, and Addy, greater Europe, to look out for each other and obey orders.
