Inspired by the true story.  Three times a day, every day, a group of young women have the opportunity to die for their country.  They are Adolph Hitler's food tasters.  And what do girls discuss as they wait to see if they will live through another meal?  Like all girls, throughout time, they gossip and dream, they question and dance.  They want to love, laugh, and above all they want to survive.
