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 coming back alive? That is nearly impossible
