55 Socks

During the winter of 1944-45 near the end of World War II, a German blockade causes widespread famine in occupied Holland. Three women and a young girl unravel a beautiful bedspread so they can knit 55 socks to barter for food. Based on a poem by Marie Jacobs, this film pays tribute to the ingenuity of the Dutch people during a dark period of their history.
