In the heart of Nazi-occupied Europe, two people meet fleetingly in a chance encounter. One is an underground resistance fighter; the other a prisoner of war. A crumpled note passes between these two strangers and sets them on a course that will change their lives forever.
The Note Through the Wire is based on the true story of Josefine Lobnik, a Yugoslav partisan heroine, and Bruce Murray, a New Zealand soldier who, due to a succession of near-impossible coincidences, discover love in the midst of a brutal war.
Woven through their tales of great bravery, daring escapes, betrayal, torture and retaliation is their remarkable love story that survived against all odds. This is the extraordinary backstory of a seemingly ordinary Kiwi couple who found each other in the midst of Hitler's barbaric regime.
