It’s 1942 and Norway is under German occupation. As everywhere, the Nazis are persecuting Jewish citizens and deporting them to extermination camps. Gerda and Otto’s parents provide aid, helping them escape over the border to neutral Sweden. But then they are arrested. When the young siblings discover two Jewish children hiding in a basement, they want to carry on their parents’ work. So, along with Sarah and Daniel, they set out for the Swedish border. Their path is full of dangers. Always at risk of being stopped by the Germans, they don’t know who they can trust along the way … Without idealising the Norwegian resistance, this enthralling film about adventurous 10-year-old Gerda and her brother, who is more susceptible to Nazi ideology, draws a realistic portrait of the mood during the era of German occupation.
