Based on the novel, Fever at Dawn is a life-affirming story of love against all odds set against the backdrop of the immediate post-Holocaust world. The characters are Jewish concentration camp survivors with fresh mental and physical wounds. But they do not let these wounds define them. In 1945, after having been freed from Bergen-Belsen, Miklos, a 25-year-old Hungarian man, is being treated at a Swedish hospital with many other Holocaust survivors. The doctors diagnose him with a severe lung disease and tell him that he has no more than six months to live. But he refuses to give up. He wants to find a wife with whom he can start a new life, and sends letters to 117 Hungarian girls who are also being treated in Sweden. One of the girls is 19-year-old Lili, who likes Miklós’s letter, and they start corresponding.
