Summary: Nazi-occupied Holland, 1945. In a snow-covered village, thirteen year-old Michiel (Martin Lakemeier) is drawn into the Resistance when he aids a wounded British paratrooper. Michiel's boyish sense of defiance and adventure soon turns to danger and desperation as Michiel is forced to act without knowing whom to trust among the adults and townspeople around him. Wartime 's harsh reality encroaches on childhood inocence as Michiel confronts good and evil, courange and duplicity and his own burden of responsibility.
