Variety has been given exclusive access to the first-look image from Amma Asante’s “Where Hands Touch,” which stars Amandla Stenberg (“The Hunger Games”) and George MacKay (“Captain Fantastic”) in a story of forbidden love in Nazi Germany.

Fifteen-year-old Leyna (Stenberg), daughter of a white German mother and a black father, meets Lutz (MacKay), the son of a prominent SS officer, and a member of the Hitler Youth. “They fall helplessly in love, putting their lives at risk as all around them the persecution of Jews and those deemed ‘non-pure’ slowly unfolds,” according to a statement. “Does their love stand a chance amidst violence and hatred?”

The film, which also stars Abbie Cornish (“Bright Star”), Christopher Eccleston (“28 Days Later”) and Tom Sweet (“The Childhood of a Leader”), is being sold by Protagonist Pictures in Berlin’s European Film Market. It was shot in Belgium and the Isle of Man, wrapping in December, and is in post-production.
