Illegal radio broadcast
The series tells the story of Marie-Laure, a blind French girl, and her father, Daniel LeBlanc, who flee German-occupied Paris with a legendary diamond to prevent it from falling into the hands of the Nazis. On the run from a ruthless Gestapo officer who wants the diamond for his own selfish purposes, Marie-Laure and Daniel find a hideout in St. Marlo. They stay with a reclusive uncle who broadcasts clandestine radio as part of the resistance.
But here in this once idyllic coastal city, Marie-Laure’s path also collides inexorably with the most unlikely kindred spirit: Werner, a brilliant teenager employed by the Hitler regime to track down illegal broadcasts. Together they share a secret bond that will become a beacon of light guiding them through the harrowing backdrop of World War II.
