15 year old Sara, a Jewish girl living in the Netherlands during the German occupation slowly begins to realize the danger she and her family are in. When her parents are forced to move to a ghetto in Amsterdam, she decides to follow them rather than live with her brother and his girlfriend. She also keeps in touch with Greet, a girlfriend she met while in hospital, despite the fact that Greet's father is collaborating with the Germans.
