    How will the next seventy years of your life be, if you lose everything at 16? Vera Martin was the only one of her extended Croatian Jewish family to survive the Holocaust. Now, at 87, she single-handedly raises thoroughbreds in the countryside near Rome, Italy. As she remembers her family’s story of death and unredeemable loss, another story unfolds: the birth of a beautiful foal, destined to be a racecourse champion.
