The Secret is a love story about living and all the promise and heartache life holds. It's about the hardships and happiness Josef and Sarah endure together as their innocent friendship evolves into a tender, torrid, tragic and unforgettable affair they hold in their hearts all the days of their lives. Beginning in the 1940s in California and enduring to present day – The Secret carries a young German American detainee and a farmer's daughter through the life, laughter, love and tears brought about by honor and obligation. Based on a time in America most would like to forget -- The Secret chronicles Josef and Sarah and a family who knows he's the one for her, but must force her to marry a neighbor's son returning from the war to save the family farm at the close of the Great Depression. The Secret is about growing up and growing old and going home again...even if it takes sixty years to find the way back.
