    • Synopsis
    • It’s 1943, but for inseparable friends Tuur and Lambert (12), the occupation is merely an exciting inspiration for their war games in the woods and in a mysterious cave. Lambert starts feeling excluded when attractive new girl Maartje moves into town and starts to get closer with Tuur – but he doesn’t know she’s Jewish while his own father is the Dutch Nazi Party-mayor. Jealous, he tells his father about the hidden pig at Maartje’s farm, and she is arrested. Lambert is determined to make up for his betrayal by helping Tuur and his family, who turn out to be members of a resistance group, escape to Belgium through the caves. But can Tuur still trust his old friend?
