That is, until the day he encounters Jewish refugee, Benjamin, hiding in the mountains and learns of an operation to smuggle Jewish children to safety in Spain. In a heroic act of defiance Jo promises to assist Benjamin in his endeavours, but soon becomes embroiled in a perilous conspiracy when German troops descend upon the village.
