From early childhood, twelve-year-old Tuur and Lambert have been best friends and they know the environment of their south-Limburg village inside out. In the summer of 1943, the war changes their world permanently. Tuur’s parents join the resistance, while Lambert’s family are members of the NSB (National Socialist Movement). But it is not just their parents’ choices that drive the bosom friends further and further apart. Their new classmate Maartje has a big secret she only wants to share with Tuur. Thrilling family film adapted from Jacques Vriens’ eponymous bestseller.
