Secretary To Hitler Traudl Junge finds herself in Berlin during the war because she wants to be a ballet dancer. A friend tells her about a job vacancy in Hitler's chancellery; she applies for it and looking like Hitler's mistress Eva Braun, she becomes one of his private secretaries. Traudl Junge sees Hitler at close quarters, shares his public life and is with him in the bunker at the end.
