60 years after she fled Vienna during WWII, an elderly Jewish woman Maria begins a journey to reclaim family possessions seized by the Nazis. Among them, Klimt’s famous painting the ‘Lady in Gold’, a portrait of her beloved Aunt Adele, which has become an Austrian national treasure akin to the Mona Lisa for France. Together with her inexperienced but plucky young lawyer Randy, she embarks upon a battle which will span more than 8 years, taking them all the way to the heart of the Austrian establishment and the US Supreme Court. The journey forces Maria to confront vivid memories of her happy family life in Austria, reliving the pain of having everything she holds dear ripped away from her and the nerve-wracking escape that saw her emigrate to the US with her husband Fritz. The arduous legal battle sees Randy gain skill and experience which help Maria ultimately win the paintings back, an uplifting but bittersweet victory in the light of all that was lost.
