Daisy is a shy Manhattan teenager attending an exclusive prep school, keeping her Jewish identity a secret and harboring a secret crush on the popular Ethan.

The only person in Daisy's life that she feels comfortable opening up to is her grandmother, Nana, a Holocaust survivor.

As Nana relates tragic stories of the horrors experienced in her youth, she becomes a guide of sorts for Daisy through her difficult adolescence.

Ethan eventually notices Daisy and begins courting her, but then Daisy's Jewish heritage is discovered by her snooty classmates.

This leads to a campaign of anti-Semitism and a truncated romance for the broken-hearted Daisy.
