Peter Rosen's documentary examines the effect that those exiled from Germany during WWII had on American music, literature and the arts.

With thousands of émigrés arriving in the United States throughout the 1930s and 1940s, Southern California became home to a host of celebrated artists, including composers Arnold Schoenberg and Walter Arlen, writers Thomas Mann and Bertolt Brecht and director Fritz Lang.
