Using unique archival footage, The Albanian Code unveils the unknown story of thousands of Jewish refugees who were rescued by the Muslim-majority country of  Albania during World War II.
Ennie Altaratz -Francis, who was saved escaping from Yugoslavia, decides to go to Albania to thank whoever she can. This voyage is full of surprises, as we discover how an entire nation saved refugees, bound by their moral code. At last, the Albanians get the appreciation they deserve for being the only country in Europe that rescued the persecuted. The film carries a universal message of gratitude to human-values.
