Gerda is a 10-year-old girl with a wooden sword, an apron cape and a very big imagination. It is World War II and just before Christmas when her parents, who are part of the Norwegian resistance, are arrested. Gerda and her brother, Otto, are left alone and she must transition her brave play-acting into reality. When the siblings discover two Jewish children, Sarah and Daniel, in their basement, they decide to finish what their parents started and bring their new friends to safety in Sweden. The four children set out across the Norwegian wilderness, facing danger and learning true courage. This is an incredible story of friendship, bravery and righteous acts for the whole family.
