It portrays the Jewish residents of a Prague boarding house during the German occupation of Czechoslovakia. While the film received several awards, it was a major commercial failure.[1] Hoffmann then returned to directing the comedies he was better known for.

The film was shot at the Barrandov Studios in Prague, and on location around the city.
