Synopsis:
Belgium, 1943. The situation is becoming unbearable for the Field family : antisemitic persecutions become common and violent. Joseph Field, the father, rebels against the occupying army. He is arrested and deported. Esther, his wife, decides to go “underground”: she enters the clandestinity. She gives her oldest son to look after with Hermann, her father-in-law. He knows an escape network to England, and there is still room for one person. Only Simon is old enough to travel alone.
