"It’s not just the German Army up there, it’s the Gestapo..."

Salvani thinks that getting home to Italy from France will be a piece of cake. After all, the border is open, the car is ready...

But the car crashes, and the only two survivors are the little Jewish boy, Judah, who Salvani has promised to escort to Italy, and Salvani himself.

And there is somebody very interested in Judah- a French secret police agent, who will stop at nothing in his pursuit of the Jews. For not only would he win promotion, buy millions of francs as well.
