Brief synopsis

Nikki, the New York author of children books, oversees a tattoo which indicates Isaac, the old illustrator of her new book, as a Holocaust survivor. From that moment on, she sees Toby, her German boyfriend, with different eyes.

"The Blind Girl" is an unusual love story between an American and a German, which examines the universal theme of preconception.
