In love, we know who we want to be.
In war we find out who we are.
In the quiet village of Carriveau, Vianne Mauriac said goodbye to his wife, Antoine, as he headed for the front. He does not believe that the Nazis will invade France, but will invade soldiers, trucks and tanks in caravans, planes filling the sky and dropping bombs on innocents. If the German captain takes Viannes home, he and his daughter must live with the enemy or lose everything. Without danger, money, and hope as the danger grows around him, he is forced to make one impossible choice after another to keep his family alive.
Viannes ’sister, Isabelle, is an eighteen-year-old rebellious young woman who seeks a goal with the careless passion of all her youth. When thousands of Parisians march into the unknown terror of war, he meets Getan, a supporter who believes the French can fight the Nazis in France and is in love because only young people can fully achieve it. But when he betrays her, Isabelle joins the Resistance and never looks back, risking her life again and again to save others.
