Set in Belgium in the early 70’s, Left Luggage is the story of Chaja, a rebellious philosophy student stuggling to come of age. Her relationship with her parents, both concentration camp survivors, is strained and she finds herself unable to accept her Jewish identity. A family friend finds her a job as a nanny for a Hassidic family with 5 children. Joining forces with Mrs. Kalman and through her love for the youngest child who doesn’t speak, Chaja learns to accept and respect a culture steeped in traditions, and finds the true value of life.
