In Poland, in 1939, the comfortable, secure world of assimilated Jews is blown away by the invasion of the Third Reich.
Maciek's father disappears into the war's vortex, leaving the orphaned child with his acerbic and beautiful Aunt Tania.
It is her cool inventiveness, in their dramatic flight through a landscape of oppression, that will ensure their fragile survival.
