When the hands touch, the review of the film by Amma Asante

Germany, 1944. Fifteen-year-old Leyna, daughter of a German mother and a Franco-Algerian father, he lives in fear because of the color of his skin. The Nazis are in fact engaged on the ground in the Second World War, but even at home the situation is certainly not rosy, with the deportations of the Jews and constant tension in the streets.
