Gustave doesn't want to move from the exciting city to the boring countriside, far from his cousin Jean-Paul and his best friend Marcel. But he has no choice. It is March of 1940 and Paris is not a safe place for Jews. When Paris is captured by the Nazis, Gustave knows that Marcel, Jean-Paul, and their families must make it out of the occupied zone. And when he learns that his new friend Nicole works for the French Resistance, he comes up with a plan that just might work. But going into Occupied France is a risky thing to do when you are Jewish. And coming back alive? That is nearly impossible.
