Complete Storyline and information about The Nightingale
France, 1939: the invasion by the German Wehrmacht is in full swing and the two sisters Vianne and Isabelle must try in their own way to get through this situation.
Vianne lives alone in her home with her daughter while her husband fights in the war. When a German officer seizes her home, she must decide whether to live with the enemy or flee with her daughter to an uncertain future.
On the other hand, 18-year-old Isabelle lives in Paris and falls in love with a young partisan. After he leaves her without warning, she decides to join the Resistance and fight the Germans. (ES)
