Synopsis: The Nazis from Germany occupied Denmark for most of World War II. For the first several years of the occupation, the Jews residing in Denmark had been left alone. Now, in 1943, Hitler has decided to "relocate" the Jews of Europe.
Annemarie Johansen and her family are very close to Ellen Rosen and her family. Annemarie never thought of Ellen any differently, even though the Rosens were Jewish. Both of their family's worlds are turned upside down one night when the Nazis come to collect the Jews. The Johansens need to make a choice between what is right and what is safe.
