Their father is a Prisoner of War, kept hostage by the Germans. When their friend Henri's parents disappear and Henri goes into hiding because of his Jewish ancestry, Paul and Marie realize they must take a stand. But how can they convince the French Resistance that even children can help in their fight against injustice?

Two young French kids experience the shadow of war creep over their beautiful home, and when their Jewish friend is forced into hiding, the siblings realize they can no longer sit idly by. Good for fans of war stories and little guys standing up against a great injustice.
