It is the summer of 1940, Hitler's army is advancing towards Paris, and millions of French civilians are on the run. Amid the chaos, two British children are being hunted by German agents.

The British secret service is about to discover that kids working undercover will help to win the war. For official purposes, these children do not exist.
