Chronicling the extraordinary lives of Erika and Klaus Mann, children of author Thomas Mann, Escape to Life presents two talented artists who challenged both social standards and the fascist Nazi government through their outrageous performances. Forced to flee their native Germany, only Erika later returned home.

The voices of Corin and Vanessa Redgrave give this brother-and-sister pair the liveliness for which they were so well known.
