Overview
Set in Antwerp, Belgium in the early '70s, Left Luggage is the touching and emotional story of Chaja (Laura Fraser), a rebellious philosophy student struggling 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 (Chaim Topol) finds her a job as a nanny for the Kalmans, a Hassidic family with five children. She has little knowledge and sympathy for their many strict rules and immediately clashes with Mr. Kalman (Jeroen Krabbe). She finds herself drawn to Simcha, their youngest son who doesn't speak. Joining forces with Mrs. Kalman (Isabella Rossellini) and through her love for Simcha, Chaja learns to accept and respect a culture steeped in traditions, and finds the true values of life.
